Statement on Governor Christie Ending Reciprocity Agreement

September 07, 2016

Harrisburg, PA – Jeff Sheridan, Governor Wolf’s press secretary, released the following statement on Governor Christie’s announcement of his intention to end the reciprocal income tax agreement between New Jersey and Pennsylvania:

“Governor Christie has erred significantly in his decision to unnecessarily punish 125,000 Pennsylvanians and cost the commonwealth $5 million annually. This will also hurt our mutual interests in creating jobs and opportunity in the region. Governor Wolf continues to hope that Governor Christie will change his mind and reverse his decision today. Unfortunately, it seems that Governor Christie is committed to making Pennsylvania and our residents working in New Jersey suffer the consequences of his failure to enact a responsible budget in a bipartisan way.”
