NJ lawmakers nowhere near deal on property taxes
Today marked Day 2 of the special session Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) called to discuss the state's property tax crisis. News 12 New Jersey was present during today's session and observed that lawmakers are nowhere near working out a deal to cap property tax increases.
Senate Democratic leader Steve Sweeney was confronted by Republicans following the session. The Republicans were angry that many Democrats did not show up for the special session.
Democratic leaders that were present say they will not be rushed into making any deals with the governor.
While it is possible lawmakers could meet over the Fourth of July weekend, many lawmakers were already on vacation.
