“I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to Senators Paul Sarlo and Steve Oroho for receiving the Tax Foundation’s award for Outstanding Achievement in State Tax Reform in 2016.

Last year was a watershed year for New Jersey as we began on the path to comprehensive tax reform. It is safe to say that without the strong leadership and hard work from Senators Sarlo and Oroho, the estate tax would not have been eliminated, the income tax on pensions would not have been reduced, the sales tax would not have been lowered and the Earned Income Tax Credit would not have been increased.

Senators Sarlo and Oroho were courageous in taking on issues where few thought they would be successful. It was only due to their vision, foresight, passion and persistence that they were able to achieve their goal on behalf of New Jersey taxpayers.
