The horse is still dead but the beating has finally stopped.
After a 90 minute discussion of personalized sports team license plates the assembly approved a bill that would allow the state to sell specialty plates with team logos on them. Teams would collect about half the revenue on the plates.
The bill would reportedly raise somewhere between $880,000 and $1 million, a fraction of the overall $29.4 billion budget that will eventually be voted on tonight.
Democrats hammered the bill's sponsor, Assemblyman Robert Schroeder R-Bergen, over the revenue projections while Republicans sought to defend the estimate.
There was some levity in the chamber despite the belabored discussion as Assemblywoman Joan Quigley (D-Jersey City) told Schroeder that teams that won't admit they are from new Jersey should not make any money from personalized plates.
