Gov. Christie wants lawmakers to reduce property tax cap
Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) has called lawmakers back for a special legislative session tomorrow in order to convince them to pass his "Cap 2.5 plan."
Christie is hoping to control property taxes by implementing the plan, which would cap property taxes at a 2.5-percent increase. The governor will address both houses and try to convince them to pass it.
The Senate president is instead pushing a bill that would cap property taxes at 2.9 percent.
The governor will appear at the podium in the statehouse tomorrow at 3 p.m. to begin urging lawmakers to pass the bill. In order for the plan to make the November ballot, the bill must pass by July 7.
