    Enough said !
    We got nothing from Christie, except to kick the can down the road.
    I have said all along, you can't make obligations and then refuse to abide with them
    I can agree with you ..Christie probably has a jacket in his closet that has all his corporate sponsors on it. Kinda like a NASCAR jacket.

    This is interesting as states hurry to implement real drivers license laws such as we had to do here in NM because our residents here could not even get a passport. The I.D.'s I had to provide were a bit over the top so I am wondering how immigrants will get around this? Click on the link to see the list of unions supporting this.

    13 Major New Jersey Labor Leaders Send Letter to Legislative Leadership, Gov. Murphy, Calling For Expansion of Access to Drivers Licenses, Regardless of Immigration Status
    March 4, 2019, Newark, NJ — Thirteen leaders of major labor unions in New Jersey sent a letter to Senate President Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin and Governor Phil Murphy on Friday calling on the officials to pass A-4743/ S-3229, legislation that would expand access to drivers licenses to all qualified New Jersey drivers, regardless of immigration status. The bill would also create a two-track licenses system as the state moves to implement the federal REAL ID act. The legislation, introduced in December by Assemblywoman Annette Quijano and Senator Joe Vitale, has stalled in the Senate and Assembly.

    The letter calls on the legislature to enact A-4743/S-3229 which will allow hundreds of thousands of New Jersey drivers to “engage more in the economic life of the state” and create safer roads in the Garden State. The labor leaders cited economic benefits to the state, including increased revenue for the state from new fees and registrations, as well as declining auto-insurance premiums as more drivers become insured. The letter notes that “New Jersey could expect anywhere between $5.2 million and $11.1 million in new revenue from these fees,” and increase residents’ spending power. Nearly a half million New Jerseyans are anticipated to be newly eligible for a license if A-4743/S-3229 becomes law.

    Deal between N.J. state workers union and Murphy includes raises, reduced health care costs. Here are the details.

    A tentative contract between the largest union of state workers and Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration includes annual raises and takes aim at out-of-network health care costs.

    The Communications Workers of America announced earlier this week it had reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract, and the administration provided details Thursday morning. The contract, which must be ratified by members, will apply to 2019 through 2023. The union’s current contract is set to expire in June.

    As part of the deal, CWA members will get 2 percent raises annually, and the two sides agreed to devise a new health care plan that the administration estimates should save the state at least $70 million a year.

    “Our tentative contract agreement provides fair wages, allows for CWA members to enter a new health care plan that generates significant savings for the state of New Jersey and taxpayers, and provides a fair premium share for members,” Murphy said in a statement.

    On Tax Day, NJ Progressives Push For Murphy's Millionaire Tax

    Did you wince when you paid your taxes this year, New Jersey? Remember that feeling the next time you hear about a millionaire tax in the Garden State, a group of grassroots activists says.

    On Monday, dozens of advocates from the Better Choices for New Jersey Coalition teamed up during the morning rush hour to hand out flyers at transit stops and post offices in 10 communities around the state: Collingswood, Elizabeth, Fair Lawn, Long Branch, Millburn, Montclair, New Brunswick, Newark, Red Bank and South Orange.

    The activists asked commuters to call their legislators in support of the millionaires tax proposed in Gov. Phil Murphy's 2020 state budget.
    "Gov. Murphy's proposed FY 2020 Budget includes a millionaires tax that would raise $447 million in new revenue. Democratic legislators passed a millionaires tax five times during the Christie Administration, but each time the measure was vetoed by the governor. Now, many of the same Democratic legislators have so far refused to back Murphy's proposed millionaires tax despite the fact that 72 percent of voters support the measure. Analysis from New Jersey Policy Perspective shows that working New Jerseyans pay a greater share of their income in taxes than the state's wealthiest 5 percent."
    Coalition participants on Monday included representatives from the Amalgamated Transit Union, Clean Water Action, Communication Workers of America, Indivisible CD5, New Jersey Citizen Action, New Jersey Working Families, Our Revolution Essex, and Our Revolution Monmouth.

    N.J. Pension Change May Skip Governor, Go to Voters, Lawmaker Says
    New Jersey’s highest-ranking state lawmaker said voters may decide on his pensions overhaul, a day after hecklers forced him to end a public meeting on a bills package aimed at rescuing the worker retirement system from insolvency.

    Senate President Steve Sweeney on Thursday introduced a set of 27 bills that includes the introduction of 401(k)-style accounts for new hires and a shift from top-tier health-insurance plans that will be highly taxed starting in 2022. The bills, he says, would rescue one of the nation’s lowest-funded pension systems, improve overall fiscal health and boost New Jersey’s credit rating. The workers say new hires would bear an unfair burden as a result.

    Governor Phil Murphy, a Democrat and retired Goldman Sachs Group Inc. senior director, is reluctant to change pensions for unions whose endorsements were key to his November 2017 election. Murphy in March negotiated 2 percent annual pay raises for Communications Workers of America New Jersey’s 32,000 members in a four-year contract that included health-care cuts. The union says its insurance negotiations save the state $2 billion a year.
