New Jersey Governor on Build Back Better Framework

Statement from Governor Murphy on Build Back Better Framework

TRENTON, NJ (STL.News) “Congratulations to President Biden on securing a framework for historic investments in working and middle class American families.  This proposed framework ensures childcare, pre-K and elder care is affordable for all Americans, makes healthcare more affordable, invests hundreds of billions of dollars in resiliency and the green economy, and strengthens middle class families through investments in housing and workforce development. Quite simply, this plan is nothing short of transformative, and it will be achieved not on the backs of middle class taxpayers but by asking the wealthy and large corporations to pay their fair share.

“I look forward to working with our Congressional delegation to ensure the final bill also includes SALT deduction cap relief.  The SALT deduction cap was the largest tax hike on middle class families in our state’s history, and I will not stop fighting until New Jersey gets the relief we deserve.”
