Bramnick calls for summer session

It’s not likely

By Nikita Biryukov, June 25 2019 12:36 pm

Assemblyman Jon Bramnick called for the legislature to stay in session for the summer following the conclusion of budget season.

“There are many issues, but let’s pass a cap on state spending and end court imposed high-density housing,” Bramnick said.

New Jersey lawmakers rarely stay in the statehouse after passing a budget, and there’s little chance Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin will force their members to show up to Trenton in July or August.

Previous governors have called special sessions during the summer to put pressure on legislators, though absent a government shutdown, there’s little chance of Gov. Phil Murphy doing the same this year.
