SOMERSET - Gov. Chris Christie called on the Assembly to act on the Interest Arbitration Bill at a town hall meeting Tuesday in Somerset.

In 2010, the state passed a property tax cap, preventing property taxes from rising more than 2 percent per year. The Interest Arbitration Bill also puts a 2 percent cap on raises for public sector workers, like police and firefighters.

The bill expired on April 1, when the Assembly failed to vote in time.

Gov. Christie says certain state parties are avoiding the cap to give raises to a select few.
