Assembly GOP to boycott business group event

There were no trading votes for a copy machine in the Assembly Republican Caucus today. The Assembly Republicans are refusing to attend a New Jersey Business and Industry Association event where the pro-business group will honor two Democrats, State Sen. Raymond Lesniak (D-Elizabeth) and Assemblyman Louis Greenwald (D-Voorhees). Freshman GOP Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains) reportedly led the boycott effort.

Earlier this year, twoRepublican gubernatorial candidates skipped the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce train trip to Washington, D.C., bashing the event because it promoted access to elected and appointed officials.And Steve Lonegan refused to attend because the Chamber had endorsd Gov Jon Corzine’s plan to increase tolls.
