Legislature Back in Full Swing
November 6th, 2015

It has been four months since the General Assembly has convened in Trenton but on Monday the drought ends.  The Assembly will join the Senate where no fewer than thirteen committees will meet on a range of legislatives issues including the impact of telemedicine in New Jersey, food labeling, the transportation of endangered animals, wind energy, and fantasy football to name a few.  We are entering what is known as the “lameduck” legislative session, which is defined as the time between when an election ends and when the new legislative cycle begins (November –January).  Typically, legislators who won’t be returning in 2016 will want to wrap up issues important to them.  The threshold question will be whether the Legislature takes on critical and controversial issues like paid sick leave, a possible gasoline tax increase, and other tax reforms like phasing out the estate tax?  No one knows for sure but if they do, it will make for an even busier holiday season.  To view Monday’s legislative session, see here.
