New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney, center, D- West Deptford addresses a gathering of mostly union supporters outside the Statehouse Thursday, May 22, 2014, in Trenton, N.J. New Jersey's largest state government employees' union said Wednesday, May 21, 2014, that it intends to sue Gov. Chris Christie over his plan to slash the state's pension contribution, saying the cut would be illegal. Christie proposed closing an unexpected $2.75 billion budget gap mostly by scrapping about $2.5 billion in payments that he agreed to three years ago as part of an overhaul of a public workers pension system left underfunded by decades of skipped or skimped state contributions.
