Final Legislative Approval For NJ Gay Marriage Bill Expected Tomorrow

NJ Legislature State of the State 2010
Tim Larsen, Governor's Office

Final legislative approval for marriage equality along with measures for gender wage equity, consumer protection regarding manufacturer’s rebates and extending the public-private construction partnerships on college campuses top tomorrow’s Assembly agenda. The session is slated to start at 1 p.m. It will be streamed live at:

The day is expected to end with Governor Chris Christie vetoing the gay marriage bill. His spokesman says it is unclear when and where that veto might take place.

The State Senate has a busy day tomorrow as well. The Economic Growth Committee will consider Senator Ray Lesniak’s “Residential Foreclosure Transformation Act,” which would allow for the purchase of foreclosed properties to be used for affordable housing, and allow municipalities to transition such properties as a credit against their affordable housing obligations.

The Judiciary Committee will meet to consider three judicial nominations as well as that of Rochelle Hendricks to be Secretary of Higher Education. The panel will also consider several bills, including one sponsored by Senator Linda Greenstein to establish penalties for “road rage” incidents.
