Our Guest, June 21, 2016
Assemblyman Ron Dancer briefed the mayors on his work in
Trenton. The legislature is hammering out a budget, he said, cautioning that
the budget is only numbers and can be superseded by law at any time.
Amendments to the state constitution, on the other hand, cannot be
superseded. Ron outlined three such amendments that will be on the November
ballot -- one that requires the state to fully fund pension obligations, one
to allow casinos in North Jersey, and yet another to strictly limit
Transportation Trust Fund money to transportation projects only.
After Ron's talk, the mayors passed a resolution asking the state to rescind its requirement that local and county governments place public notices in certain newspapers and allow those notices to be posted instead on appropriate web sites.
As you can see to the right, there will be no meetings during July and August. The OCMayors will kick off a new season of great guests in September. We'll see you then.
Have a great summer!
