Sen. Kean Statement on Governor’s Conditional Veto of Democrats’ Partisan Minimum Wage Bill

 

 
 Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R- Union) issued the following statement on Governor Chris Christie’s conditional veto of A-2162:

“The Governor has rightly rejected a partisan bill to set New Jersey’s minimum wage on auto pilot regardless of the economic circumstances or needs of job creators. The recommendations for changes made in his veto statement are the reasonable and responsible way to increase the minimum wage without telling New Jersey’s business community to, in effect, drop dead.”

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
