Florio Tribute: Craig Coughlin

By NJG Press Releases, September 26 2022 8:55 am

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin issued the following statement on the death of former Governor Jim Florio:

“Governor Florio was not afraid of a challenge and took on big issues, courageously. Proud to call him a friend, today we honor his life and legacy, marked by a storied career in public service and a longstanding commitment to New Jersey in the decades after. Whether permanently protecting the Pinelands, driving down auto insurance rates or enacting stricter gun safety laws, Governor Florio’s legislative record left an indelible mark on New Jerseyans. Tish and I extend our deepest condolences to Lucinda and the family. He will be missed.”
