LAST MINUTE SCRAMBLING BY ASSEMBLY GOP MEMBERS MAKE BUDGET VOTE INTERESTING

A pair of Assembly Republicans are looking to get last minute changes to the budget. The Star-Ledger reports that Michael Patrick Carroll and Alison Littell McHose are both looking for changes in school funding and how aid cuts have been distributed. Gov. Chris Christie needs all the Republican support he can get as he needs Democrats to support his budget as well to get passed. If both voted against the budget, Christie may need to look for additional Democratic votes to get the budget through. Democrats say they will be providing eight votes in the Assembly, and that Christie needs to bring his party to the table to get a deal down, without any amendments to the budget.
