The Assembly Democratic legislation is sponsored by Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver, Majority Leader Lou Greenwald, Budget Chairman Vincent Prieto, Deputy Speaker John Wisniewski, Connie Wagner, Wayne DeAngelo and Paul Moriarty. The bill was released by the budget panel.

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish
