Senator Bucco: It’s no shock Gov. Murphy is delaying hearings on his expensive green energy plan

NEW JERSEY – Senator Anthony M. Bucco said it’s no shock that Governor Phil Murphy is pushing back hearings on his increasingly unpopular Energy Master Plan until “later in the year.”

“Let’s be clear that ‘later in the year’ means after Election Day,” said Bucco (R-25). “Trenton Democrats are scared that New Jerseyans might learn before November how much their energy bills will rise and how expensive it’ll be to convert their homes and businesses from gas to electric under Murphy’s extreme green energy plan. People deserve the truth.”

Governor Murphy announced Sunday that hearings and stakeholder meetings that were set to begin this week on his Energy Master Plan would be pushed back, Bucco said.

With all 120 seats in the Legislature on the ballot this fall, Bucco said the delay is purely political.

“Delaying hearings is all about protecting the Democrat majority in the Legislature,” Bucco said. “The more people learn about Governor Murphy’s extreme green energy plan, the more they realize they can’t afford it, and that’s bad for Democrats.”
