New Jersey State Senator Anthony M. Bucco said it’s no shock that Governor Phil Murphy is pushing back hearings on his increasingly unpopular Energy Master Plan until “later in the year.”
“Let’s be clear that ‘later in the year’ means after Election Day,” said Bucco (R-25). “Trenton Democrats are scared that New Jerseyans might learn before November how much their energy bills will rise and how expensive it’ll be to convert their homes and businesses from gas to electric under Murphy’s extreme green energy plan. People deserve the truth.”
Governor Murphy announced yesterday that hearings and stakeholder meetings that were set to begin this week on his Energy Master Plan would be pushed back.
With all 120 seats in the Legislature on the ballot this fall, Bucco said the delay is purely political.
“Delaying hearings is all about protecting the Democrat majority in the Legislature,” added Bucco. “The more people learn about Governor Murphy’s extreme green energy plan, the more they realize they can’t afford it, and that’s bad for Democrats.”
