CHRISTIE PREPARED TO PROPOSE 2.5 PERCENT CAP ON PUBLIC EMPLOYEES

gov_christieA new report says the Gov. Chris Christie is going to propose a permanent cap for public worker raises. The Star-Ledger reports that all public employees, including teachers, and police would fall under this capped increase. The report says the 33-bill package makes many key changes to how public employees are handled. Among the changes include moving the retirement age to 65 from 62, cap current employees to cash out at $15,000 worth of sick time, and cap all municipal, school, and country tax increase at 2.5 percent. Many key Democrats have said they agree with the concept of a “tool kit” to help local governments, but do not agree with all of the methods Christie plans to use.
