BREAKING – Prieto Drafting a Bill; Plus DETAILS

TRENTON – Emerging from his office following meetings with Horizon, Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32) gave some indication of movement to put to an end the state government shutdown.

“I’ve instructed my staff to start doing some drafting,” said Prieto, without giving specifics.

A source close to the negotiations said the bill would follow the Pennsylvania model.

Two board seats would feature one selected by the speaker and one by the senate president.

The bill will contain a floor and ceiling of Horizon reserve money that the state can tap.

Anything that exceeds that cap would go to the ratepayers. May from S-4 will be changed to shall.

The source who provided details to InsiderNJ said he/she expects the bill to be drafted tonight with a budget vote as soon as tonight, but was not certain.
