Senate President Steve Sweeney recently said about the looming pension crisis: “If we can click with the public and they get angry, we’ve got to channel that anger to demand solutions.”
New Jersey’s public pension liabilities are estimated at more than $200 billion and growing each year. Whether we like it or not, taxpayers will be on the hook. The first pension fund goes broke in 2021.
The Senate President and lawmakers are going around the state for a listening tour and plan on drafting legislation starting January 1. They need to hear from us ASAP.
Take action by sending Senate President Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Coughlin a message that you care and it’s time to save our state!
