TRENTON - Gov. Christie and the Senate's top elected Democrat appeared to reach a preliminary agreement Thursday on a bill that would create a commission to study college affordability in New Jersey.
While Christie, a Republican, vetoed the legislation, he recommended changes that he said he would sign into law. Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester) responded that the revisions "seem like something we can work with and possibly accept."
"I will move as quickly as possible, because the longer we delay, the worse the problem will get for New Jersey families," Sweeney said in a statement.
