"And a huge three tripling of an investment in nj transit which. Was desperately a left behind an? In, need, of funding in, new leadership those are all game changers for the middle class not to mention serious property tax relief, whether it's through the Homestead act or whether, it's through raising the ceiling on state tax-deductibility of. Property taxes or for funding public education those are the winners and we came out with the wealthiest among? Us paying their fair share we close corporate loopholes we did good housekeeping closed hedge fund loopholes so the middle class got the investment those who could afford it paid it we got a. Break you know one of the only. Breaks got another supreme court I have to say of late is that. We're able out attacks, put a sales tax on internet sales that gave us some latitude that we didn't have, a month ago which allowed us to to to. Reach the conclusion we got to I'm thrilled with where we, came out we have more work, to do I'm not spiking the football by any means but, it was a great step I think in the long road back to recovery. And what about the idea that some of this. Extra revenue that were that you're now, going to raise is Going to sunset over the next four years and you're going to have to go. Back to the legislature. And ask for more tax increases at a time when politically it won't, be viable I saw. You take nothing off, the table but we're. Not gonna tax our way to salvation, just like we won't gut, a government. And cut our way. To salvation, we have to grow this economy and that that sorta phasing of the corporate tax is not a coincidence that is tied to our best estimates in terms of what a reasonable growth of this economy should be let's remember in addition to the great inequities that we suffered. Under the Christie. Administration our economy didn't grow whether you. Comparis- to an average American state. Or a peer group of states we probably, left twenty to fifty billion billion, with a b. dollars of economic activity on the. Table annually that's two or three billion dollars in our state budget that we should have every year that? We Don't have that's injustice Justice that just growing in an average right so. I'm committed to working not just with the legislature but but with all the levers, that we have at our disposal to growing our economy again not just the big companies although we. Wanna make sure we focus on them but the medium companies and the small businesses and startups who have. Been ignored over the past eight or ten years we want to correct that Senate president Steve Sweeney Just. Recently said that he intends to, put a constitutional amendment. Before the voters in November to take the power of estimating and establishing, what the projected revenue, is for the year out of the governor's hands and into two. Independent board what do you think of that listen I think a lot of what you read and. Hear about the relationship, that we, may have is is misplaced overblown. Stephen I am the speaker Craig Coughlin see many things in a, similar light this is not one of, them? The department of taxation the, treasury actually has a unique, ability, with access to the tax rolls and by the way the folks in the legislative team, or are good honest hardworking, folks they just don't have the full access to, the data that the office of taxation and treasury have so in this one I'm I'm I'm not in agreement on. That I think this is it's done, the way Way, it should be in, that is the governor himself or herself has to. Has to certify the revenues you're, listening to ask governor. Murphy WBZ geo news production in collaboration with WNYC and WHYY if you've got a question for, the governor call us at eight four four six seven seven nine, two eight three.
