With Transportation Trust Fund legislation (S-2111/A-11 & S-2412/A-10) being released from Committee with bipartisan support on Thursday, we now look to Monday when we anticipate the bills being posted in both houses.
We respectfully ask all affiliates to come to the State House on Monday, June 27, 2016, to personally speak with legislators and urge them to support these important bills. Caucuses begin at 10:00 a.m. and the first voting session begins at 1:00 p.m.
These bills represent a robust 10-year, $2 billion annual infrastructure program that our state desperately needs to update our aging infrastructure, modernize and expand our public transit systems and spur job growth in the construction sector.
ACR-109, which places full public employee pension funding on the November ballot, will also be considered in the Assembly. This ballot question is a longtime priority for the New Jersey State AFL-CIO and we urge all affiliates to express to legislators in both houses the need to vote in favor.
Thank you for your advocacy and support of these important initiates. We will see you in the State House this Monday, June 27, 2016.
