LAME DUCK LEGISLATIVE SESSION ON

 LAME DUCK LEGISLATIVE SESSION ON STATE OF THE STATE'
 TRENTON, N.J., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- New Jersey Assembly Speaker


Joseph Doria (D-Hudson) pledged to give serious consideration to a proposal to repeal the entire $2.8 billion tax package enacted by the legislature in the summer of 1990. Speaking on CTN's "State of the State," Doria would not promise to post the repeal bills for a vote but would not rule action out, either.
 Doria also reiterated his opposition to Initiative and Referendum, allowing voters to place questions on the ballot. His comments came only two days after Gov. Jim Florio announced on another "State of the State" program that he is rethinking his position on both I & R and Term Limitations for state lawmakers.
 Doria and State Senator Richard Codey (D-Essex) discussed those issues and others with host Gene Dillard and Audrey Kelly of the New Brunswick Home News on "State of the State." The program will air Monday, Nov. 18, at 9:30 p.m. and Monday, Nov. 25, at 9:30 p.m. on CTN. Check local listings for the CTN channel in your area.
 Codey said he felt that I & R and Term Limitation are "bogus issues." He said that after 18 years in government, very few of his constituents had even asked him to consider either citizen proposal.
 Healthcare reform, Congressional re-districting, changes in auto insurance laws and Codey's proposal to require high school students to participate in community service projects are several of the issues addressed on this edition of "State of the State."
 "State of the State" is a prime time series produced by CTN in cooperation with the New Jersey Cable Operators through the production facilities of TKR Cable of Hamilton.
