TRENTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee just reconvened, but Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Joe Spicuzzo will not be avaliable to testify regarding his nomination to the Sports and Exposition Authority.

"Then why are we here?" comes a voice from the crowd of senators who left the Senate chamber to come over here to the Senate Annex.

"Mr. Spicuzzo came down here, but fell ill, and left," explains Senate Judiciary Chairman Paul Sarlo (D-Wood-Ridge).

While the judiciary committee considers several other nominations, the Senate as a whole is taking a recess before sizing up the state budget later this evening.
