Legislature Votes to Place Constitutional Amendment Regarding Judicial Pensions/Healthcare on the November Ballot

Racing to meet an August 2 deadline for putting on the November ballot a proposal to amend the New Jersey Constitution in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in DePascale  v. New Jersey, both houses of the Legislature voted today to do just that.  The Senate voted 28-0 in favor, while the Assembly vote was 62-3.  Both votes far exceeded the three-fifths necessary to put the measure on the ballot.
