UPDATE: A few minutes ago, NJ Senate adjourned without posting SCR2.
This morning started with a prayer vigil with several faith leaders and more than 200 members of two unions whose members’ future will be deeply impacted by decisions of NJ legislators, this governor and possibly New Jersey voters. Union members then fanned out to lobby legislators to stress the importance to them of a pension constitutional amendment. At noon, labor rallied outside the State House, with among others, senators Pat Diegnan (3rd video), Ronald Rice and Loretta Weinberg as well as Speaker Vincent Prieto. Three short videos, below. Workers are asking you to call Senate President Sweeney and tell him to post SCR2 (Senate Concurrent Resolution 2) for a vote today to put the pension constitutional amendment question on the ballot in November.
