Beck blasts Horizon bill as small business killer

Jennifer Beck (R-11) doesn’t regret her Thursday vote in the Senate, Save Jerseyans, and she doubled down as a state shutdown inched closer on Friday afternoon.

“Any Horizon policy holder that has overpaid in premiums should get that money back,” Beck declared.” It is unconscionable for the State to swoop in and take their hard-earned dollars and put it into a slush fund for pet projects.

“30,000 small businesses in New Jersey provide Horizon policies for their employees. These are ‘mom and pop’ coffee shops, flower stores, and other unique storefronts that only employ a hand full of employees. They would really suffer if this bill landed on the Governor’s desk.
