Gov. Chris Christie's halted state-funded public projects until
Democrats in the Legislature approve the bond sale to pay for them, their failure to approve the bond sale led to work stoppages on Monday.
State Transportation Commissioner James Simpson stated it was decided not to halt projects that are partially funded by the federal government.
Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-Bergen), the panel's co-chairman, abstained from the vote, Assemblyman Louis D. Greenwald (D-Camden), the other co-chairman, voted against the financial move, leaving to remaining Democrats and the panel‘s two Republicans to approve it.
It was a tense hearing with Sarlo and Greenwald sometimes raising their voices during questioning and Simpson answering the same way.
