On tap: Senate to vote on sports gambling, Transitional Aid, and ‘jobs’ package on Thursday

TRENTON – The lame duck season is in full swing this Thursday, with full-body sessions in both chambers. The Senate is handling a long list of bills, including state Sen. Ray Lesniak’s (D-20), of Elizabeth, sports betting bill; a bill restoring $139 million in Transitional Aid; and several job-creation measures that were vetoed once by Gov. Chris Christie, but have made their way back through the Legislature.
