The head of the New Jersey State Senate will unveil a plan on Tuesday that will result in higher contributions by state workers towards their health insurance benefits. Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney will roll out a new plan today that will result in state employees paying a lot more for the health benefits that they currently enjoy. This will take place exactly one week before Governor Chris Christie outlines his state budget to lawmakers. The new plan will result in about $1 billion worth of savings to the state. Employees’ unions are expected to vigorously fight this proposal.
