‘Split the bill”

TRENTON – Public worker protestors called for a fresh round of boos and hisses as they invoked the names of Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) and Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-21), who moments ago left the budget hearing room.

Budget Chairman Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-36) and Senate Majority Barbara Buono (D-18) asked Sweeney and Kean to split the pension portion from the healthcare portion of their health benefits and pension reform bill.

“Split the bill, split the bill, split the bill,” the crowd yelled.  ‘Split the bill”
