More bills added for final 2014 voting sessions in Trenton


On Tuesday, we published a list of  energy and environmental bills that were scheduled to be voted on today (12/18) at the final 2014 voting sessions of the New Jersey Senate and Assembly.

Since then, as often is customary before a recess, leadership in both houses were pressured into adding more than a dozen additional pieces of legislation in each house to the scores of bills already already listed for a vote. It's going to be a long day.

Below are the energy and environmental bills expected to be called in each house. Lawmakers will return in mid January for the second half of their two-year 216th Session.
