Governor Chris Christie’s Sick Pay Reforms Needed to Deliver Real, Long-Term Property Tax Relief to New Jersey Families

Trenton, NJ – December 20, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Governor Chris Christie has put forward a common sense policy to finally end the wasteful practice of paying out taxpayer dollars to public workers for unused sick days. These local government obligations have a real and direct cost to property taxpayers, totaling over $1000 for the average property taxpayer in some municipalities. The legislature, now on vacation through the end of the year, has failed to take up these reforms and deliver relief to property taxpayers despite the fact that accumulated sick and vacation liabilities already total over $825 million on municipalities’ books.
