Senate President Sweeney Names COVID-19 Fiscal Recovery Strategists

219th Legislative Session COVID-19 Legislative Updates Legislative Updates

On April 17, Senate President Steve Sweeney announced Budget Chair Senator Paul Sarlo and Senate Republican Budget Officer Senator Steve Oroho as the Senate's bipartisan fiscal strategists. They will work with the Murphy Administration and the Legislature to develop plans to restart the state's economy in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.


The fiscal recovery priorities are to include an effort to assure that New Jersey gets its fair share of federal aid, coordinates a coherent three-month budget extension for the current fiscal year, develops an "economically-prudent" plan for next year's nine-month budget, and puts together a comprehensive plan to reopen the economy after the COVID-19 crisis.
