Democratic legislative leaders announced a deal they reached on capping arbitration awards one hour before Governor Christie’s press conference. The awards determine salary increases for police and fire at the local level. Democrats agree with Governor Christie on the two-percent cap but their arbitration proposal includes steps and would exclude pension payments and health care costs.
Governor Christie complained the Democrats have failed to act for five months on the tool kit and read a list of bills they have passed that have nothing to do with property tax reform.
