I encourage anyone who is able to volunteer to do so. Together, we can help improve the lives of veterans and bring some joy to their families during this season of giving.”

Tax Bracket Creep Will Continue to Drive NJ Income Tax Bills Higher

“Yesterday’s action by the IRS to raise the income thresholds for federal tax brackets was a reminder that New Jersey is one of just a few states that doesn’t annually index our tax brackets for inflation,” said Bucco (R-25). “Unfortunately, legislation that would address this issue for state taxpayers has stalled in Trenton. While Democrats dither on the tax relief I have proposed, more New Jersey families will find themselves with higher state tax bills and smaller paychecks as a result of inflation.”

Senators Michael Testa and Anthony M. Bucco, Republican members of New Jersey’s bipartisan Legislative Manufacturing Caucus, warned that the impact will be felt across the state in the form of higher product costs and skyrocketing energy bills.

“This will be nothing short of a man-made economic disaster,” said Testa (R-1). “As usual, the Murphy Administration is diving in without considering the ramifications or the costs. This all is happening too quickly and without the proper diligence.”

Attempt to Swipe Land Rover from Gov’s Neighbor Highlights Issue

A brazen attempt to break into a garage and make off with a costly Land Rover in an upscale Middletown neighborhood accentuated the growing auto theft crisis that is spreading across the state.

That the targeted property was next door to Governor Murphy’s family estate made the incident newsworthy, but it is hardly unique. At the current pace, more than 17,000 vehicles will be stolen in New Jersey this year.

“Enough is enough,” said an exasperated Senator Anthony M. Bucco, the sponsor of legislation that would give law enforcement new tools to fight an epidemic of car thefts.
