CHRISTIE PUTS PRESSURE ON ASSEMBLY TO DEAL WITH COAH LEGISLATION

A bill that passed through the Senate that would essentially end the Council on Affordable Housing is being held up in the Assembly. A one-year moratorium on a 2.5 percent fee that commercial developers have to pay will be reenacted this Thursday. The Assembly wants more time to examine the Senate bill that would get rid of the fee as well as COAH. Gov. Chris Christie said he will veto any bill that simply looks to extend the moratorium while the Assembly continues to look at the measure.
