Re: Update on Interest Arbitration Cap
It has been six weeks since the Governor and the State Senate took action to extend the strict 2% cap on interest arbitration awards. In recent news accounts, Assembly Speaker Prieto has been quoted that he is negotiating with the Governor on a compromise that is good for everyone and looking to strike a balance between the taxpayers and public safety officials.
At this time, the Assembly is next scheduled to come back to Trenton for a voting session on Thursday, May 22nd. If you are interested in being involved in the League’s lobbying efforts on this issue please contact Mike Cerra at 609-695-3481 x120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions on this legislation can be directed to either Lori Buckelew at 609-695-3481 or email@example.com x112 or Mike Cerra at 609-695-3481 x120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very truly yours,
