"Today's meeting was another open, thoughtful exchange of ideas between the public and our review group. By reviewing, and ultimately eliminating, unfunded mandates on local government, we can help rein in the costs that continue to drive higher property taxes on New Jerseyans. As the group continues working in a bipartisan fashion to craft common sense reforms to streamline government and improve New Jersey's business climate, I am encouraged by the positive response we've received from the public and various stakeholders in the process. I look forward to our remaining work and recommending strong, meaningful reform at the end of this process for the Governor and legislature to act on."
