TRENTON - New Jersey voters will decide this November whether to raise the state's minimum wage.

The state Assembly voted today on a resolution that would place the constitutional amendment on the ballot in November. A "yes" vote would raise the minimum wage $1 to $8.25 and tie future increases to the Consumer Price Index.

Gov. Chris Christie suggested phasing in the increase over three years.
