Governor Phil Murphy and legislative leadership this weekend came to an agreement on the so-called ‘dark money’ bill, scheduled for a veto override vote today.
The legislature will pass the bill, and the governor will sign it into law.
By the end of the month, the senate and assembly will pass legislation addressing the concerns of advocacy groups.
“Phil folded,” an establishment Democrat grunted as the legislature readied for today’s voting session with the votes to reverse Murphy’s initial override of the legislation.
Not so, a Murphy ally insisted.
His same-party rivals in the legislature just wanted to bloody the governor with an override vote.
