Budget voting to start Sunday, not Saturday

1

Voting on the state budget will have to wait an extra day to begin, as lawmakers are being told to wait until Sunday until returning to the Capitol for voting.

The state Senate had been slated to enter their chamber at 4 p.m. Saturday. But that session has been pushed back a day, when senators are scheduled to begin voting on the first budget bills at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Voting on the budget is broken up into a series of bills, separating issues like state government operations, aid to localities, legislative and judiciary spending and capital projects.

Both the Senate and Assembly approved the first budget bill — relating to the state’s debt — last week.

Now, budget voting is expected to extend into at least Monday. Not all budget bills are printed yet, and they must “age” for three days before they can be put to a vote.

The Assembly, meanwhile, is expected to begin its session at 5 p.m. Sunday, with the Democratic majority scheduled to conference in private beforehand.
