TRENTON - Democratic leaders from the state Senate and the Assembly say it is time for Republicans to put their differences aside as they set up for voting sessions this week on economic development bills.

Democrats also took shots at the state's most-powerful Republican, Gov. Chris Christie. They blasted the governor on his handling of last week's blizzard and for how he is handling filling a vacancy on the state's Supreme Court.

Both the Senate and the Assembly will take up the economic development bills Thursday.
