Source: PoliticoPro - Assembly Republican leader Jon Bramnick issued a statement this morning calling on legislative leaders to meet before the Assembly votes Thursday on Speaker Vincent Prieto’s Atlantic City rescue package.
“People expect their leaders to work together during a crisis, not against each other,” Bramnick said. “I call for the Legislative leaders of both houses to meet tomorrow at 11 a.m. to work out a compromise.”
The Assembly voting session is currently scheduled for 11 a.m. and party caucuses are scheduled for 9 a.m. Gov. Chris Christie has also called GOP Assembly members to the governor’s mansion for a breakfast, though he has said the meeting has nothing to do with Atlantic City.
The municipality, which considered defaulting on its debt this week, expects to have enough money to make its monthly payroll this Friday and to make a school tax transfer on May 15, according to Mayor Don Guardian. After that, the city will likely be out of money and be forced to shut down come early June — if not sooner.
