Senator Joe Pennacchio bashed legislative Democrats for failing to consider a bipartisan agreement to address minimum wage during today’s Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee hearing on A-2162.
During the Oct. 15 Budget Committee meeting, Senator Pennacchio made a motion to schedule a hearing on A-2162, in lieu of Democrats’ proposal to seek a constitutional amendment. The majority party rejected Pennacchio’s motion, indefinitely tabling compromise and any action on the Democrat Assembly Speaker’s A-2162.
“Today’s committee hearing on A-2162 appeared to reflect a change of heart by Senate Democrats and hopefully a willingness to compromise on a legislative remedy for minimum wage,” said Pennacchio (R-Morris). “But unfortunately for small businesses and those who are unemployed, the majority party is still making minimum wage a partisan exercise and a campaign tactic for next year.”
