Action Alert! $6B Open Space Bill Up July 29 In Senate

July 26, 2013 J

Take Action>>> STOP Trenton’s Wasteful $6 BILLION Open Space Bill!

While many New Jerseyans are trying to enjoy their summer, the New Jersey state senate is hard at work…trying to pass more wasteful legislation while few are paying attention!

On Monday morning at 9AM, the senate will vote on Bill SCR-160 which seeks to amend our state constitution in order to dedicate $200 MILLION a year from our sales and use tax to open space…for the next 30 YEARS!

That’s $6 BILLION over the course of 30 years for a cash-strapped state that already has more than $100 billion of debt and unfunded liabilities!

 This bill needs to be stopped and your state senators need to hear from you today!

See below for contact for contact information for your state senator. Not sure of your state senator? CLICK HERE to search by municipality.

Tell your senator to STOP the fiscal irresponsibility! Vote NO on SCR-160!
