NJ government shutdown could affect your holiday weekend

They won't be kicking one family out of a state park because of the state government shutdown.

Solazzo also says it's awful for families looking for a day at the beach.

Though some signs have popped up around the state blaming the mess on Prieto, it's likely that the wildly unpopular Christie will ultimately take the fall.

Prieto held a vote Friday on the budget that remained deadlocked with only 26 yes votes out of 41 needed to prevail.

A similar vote Thursday afternoon also failed by a 24-22 tally before Prieto pulled the bill down and called a recess. Prisons, the state police and casinos will remain open.

"I will keep it open". "It is now about transparency and accountability".

IL on Saturday entered an unprecedented third year with no full state budget, as lawmakers continued meeting in Springfield. "I love it; it's the best place in New Jersey", he said. "This is completely avoidable".

On Saturday, the Republican governor shut down the government over an intense battle with the Democrat-led Legislature because they refused his wish to overhaul the state's largest health insurer.

Christie is demanding that the $34.7 billion state budget include a provision requiring that Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield spend some of its reserve fund on public health initiatives - particularly the governor's drug treatment initiative.

"If they sent me a budget tonight without Horizon, then, I'll act in one particular way".

Prieto does not believe that the Horizon bill should be tied to the budget.

It also says that the two "rushed into an engagement" after the Enquirer threatened to expose some of those details. Basically, you'd be forgiven for thinking Regina George had written Trump's latest tweet.

Democratic Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto opposes the bill and refuses to consider it for a vote, leading to a stalemate.

Such a fiscal debacle had been avoided since 2006, when New Jersey Democrats shut down the government in an argument over raising the state sales tax despite controlling the governorship and both chambers of the Legislature.

This isn't the first time Christie has been criticized for his vacation plans. "He was willing to compromise", Sweeney said. "I have my boat here and I can't get my boat, no good", he added. "But again, Horizon is off the table", he said. "I think it's going to be pretty clear who is responsible for this".

Christie, a Republican, has promised to use his line-item veto to eliminate other bills in the budget unless the Horizon bill is passed, nj.com reported.

Asked whether more services will close if a shutdown continues, he said, "Probably not".

"It's complete hypocrisy by the speaker", Christie said.

Prieto responded "things change and things evolve".

But Christie's second and final term is wrapping up with his approval ratings at 15 percent.

"What is happening with the state budget is a disgusting display of Trenton politics that threatens to grind our state to a halt". His campaign did not immediately respond to Guadagno's statement.

Day Two of the shutdown of New Jersey's government continued Sunday after legislators failed to find a compromise on the 2018 state budget during an emergency meeting at the Statehouse Saturday.
