Legislative Update Week of April 18th
2010 Legislative Session
The biggest development this week was the defeat of gambling on the House Floor. SB 489, which was sponsored by Sen. Lou D’Allesandro and promised much needed revenue for the state, was defeated 212-158. That particular bill is dead, but it may not be the end of gambling this session. There are a few other ways to get gambling back on the table so we will keep you posted.
The House Finance committee heard testimony all week from state agencies that would be affected by the Governor’s cuts proposed in SB 450. There has not been talk of the 1.7% increase in employee contribution…yet. The committee begins work sessions on the amendment next week where the topic is likely to come up.
The Retiree Medical Trust endorsement (SJR 2) passed unanimously on the House Floor. The resolution now heads to the Governor’s desk for his signature.
Upcoming legislative action this week:
Tuesday April 27th
Full committee work session on HB 450
Amendment to SB 450:
Public hearing on SB 470 which would delete the provision for out of state workers to buy retirement service credit.
Thursday, April 29th
Work session on SB 450: (Budget vehicle bill)
Public Hearing on HB 1486 (sprinkler legislation)
