Power & Politics - Full Show for July 28
If you thought the power struggle in Trenton was resolved with the signing of the state budget -- think again. Now it’s about taking budget forecasting power away from the governor via a constitution amendment. Marc Pfeiffer, senior policy fellow at Rutgers Bloustein Local Government Research Center and Nick Pugliese, statehouse reporter for the Record, join Eric Landskroner to discuss.
This week, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal postponed marijuana prosecutions for 30 days while the state develops guidelines to potentially downgrade or dismiss some offenses. The move is seen as yet another step toward legalization. To discuss the pros and cons, Eric Landskroner speaks with Assemblyman Jamel Holley and Point Pleasant Beach Mayor Stephen Reid, also Executive Director of NJ-RAMP.
