Senate President Steve Sweeney
There’s a push on Governor Chris Christie to approve a measure now on his desk that would legalize online wagering within the borders of New Jersey.
North Jersey State Senator Barbara Buono has filed papers to run in the 2013 Democratic primary.
Christie is offering a voter referendum on the question to Democrats as a way to address the issue once and for all, but Democratic leaders argue gay marriage is a civil rights issue and they vow to confine consideration of gay marriage to the legislature.
With just four days left for New Jersey legislators to approve a budget for the fiscal year that starts on Friday, a Senate committee is set to address an option that’s become quite popular and controversial: the millionaires’ tax debate.
