N.J. Governor’s Budget to Divert $33 Million From Fallen Firefighters

“This is pretty low. It sounds like the governor saw a pile of cash under state control and just decided to take it.”

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is coming under fire for his 2020 proposed budget which diverts $33 million from a fund which helps fallen firefighters to the state’s general fund to use for anything he deems suitable.

Critics of the governor’s plan are calling it “horrendous” that he would divert the millions from the fund which pays for burials and also offers financial help to firefighters killed, NJ Advance Media reports.
