No State House summer break
The State House in Trenton is usually a ghost town after the budget is signed, but that may not be the case this summer.
The leaders of both houses, Assembly Speaker Vinnie Prieto and Senate President Steve Sweeney, say they will work through the normal recess to try and dent into New Jersey’s highest in the nation property taxes.
This is something we have heard before, with a lot of talk and precious few ideas.
There is a plan that has potential in the Senate that would force towns to share services, but Prieto has given no indication he’ll allow a vote on the measure in the Assembly.
