Send Your Coalition Letter Today

With only 16 days left before the 2% cap on interest arbitration awards expire, your voices need to be heard! Even if you are one of the thousands of local officials, representing millions of our taxpayers, who already publicly called on the Legislature to extend the 2% Interest Arbitration cap by resolution, by letter, by email or by phone, please do it one more time. Please contact your State representatives, the Legislative Leaders, Governor Christie, and Governor-Elect Murphy expressing the urgent need for the extension of the 2% cap on interest arbitration awards.
