Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32) and his allies are emailing caucus members this afternoon ahead of a Thursday morning meeting to discuss the bail reform package championed by Gov. Chris Christie and Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3).
Prieto was noncommital in a statement.
“I think everyone understands the need to change the bail system, but I also expect a constructive dialogue,” said the speaker amid complaints in the lower house about a lack of detail.
“As I’ve made clear, I want to get this done, but each and every member of the Assembly – duly elected representatives of the people of New Jersey – deserves to get their questions answered and concerns heard on this important issue,” he added.
