Will budget postponment impact Albin vote?

The decision to postpone today's scheduled vote on the state budget comes with at least one apparent scheduling conflict: the Senate Judiciary Committee has set aside nearly a full day on Monday for confirmation hearings on the renomination of New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Barry Albin. The full Senate had been expected to vote on Albin next Thursday – and Republicans are unlikely to agree to rush the session without giving Senators a chance to speak on the nomination. That could mean a postponement of the Albin vote until after the budget – there is no rush, since Albin's term isn't up until September.
