TRENTON – The Christie administration vetoed the project labor agreement bill, one of the more controversial bills in this election year.
Senate President Steve Sweeney expressed his disappointment that S2425 was vetoed.
“The governor’s veto is disappointing because it would have meant work for thousands of New Jersey residents. At a time when the unemployment rate in New Jersey is among the highest in the country, this was really a common sense measure that would have created jobs right here.
“This administration continues to see no problem with the recovery effort being led by out-of-state companies employing people not from New Jersey. It simply lacks sense to not try and have as many people as possible from this state employed in rebuilding it. Instead, while companies like AshBritt continue to reap the benefits of the storm, middle class families in New Jersey will continue to reap the burden.”

Ray Lesniak, the Union County Democratic Party power broker." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
