ARBITRATION VOTE GETS DELAY IN ASSEMBLY

A proposal to change the arbitration system in the state has been delayed. A bill announced by Democratic lawmakers last week did not have the support of Gov. Chris Christie. Assembly Speaker Shelia Oliver said members of the Democratic caucus in the Assembly had some ideas for how to make the bill better and she wanted to listen to her members. Christie wants any arbitration to have a hard two percent cap like towns are faced with on tax increases. Currently, arbitration can reward public safety unions with rich increases in salary.
