SPEAKER OLIVER STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR’S VETOES

Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic) released the following statement Friday on the governor’s vetoes of bills to protect health care for women and working families and stimulate the economy and create jobs through a homebuyer tax credit:

“I will review these vetoes and discuss them with the Assembly Democratic caucus. But I know this – these bills are vitally important to women’s health care, children, our economy and working class New Jerseyans. My inclination is that I expect to work with the Senate to put these bills back up for veto overrides. I expect a final decision soon.”
