Paramus (September 17, 2018) – Anthony Russo, President of the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ) released a statement on the agreement reached on healthcare benefits between the Murphy Administration and labor groups.
“The Commerce & Industry Association of New Jersey applauds Gov. Murphy and his administration for taking a step in the right direction to cut costs while maintaining high-quality healthcare for public employees in New Jersey. The agreement reached today between labor groups and the state will save hundreds of millions of dollars over the next few years yet will still provide public employees and retirees quality medical care while improving the delivery of healthcare for those enrolled in the benefits program. This type of effective, smart cost-cutting is what New Jersey needs to grow its economy.”
