his speeches when he talks about how to be stronger when dealing with china he gives karl icon all these qued owes for being a great businessman but you have to wonder does donald trump think this is goodbyes or good for his name as this will make national news if a casino called trump taj mahal and see the word trump that is way bigger than taj mahal letters every where you look here. we're talking about a thousand hospitality staff and all those guests usually sold out on the big summer weekend of the fourth of july won't be able to get those fresh towels or rooms cleaned or that morning breakfast brought up through room serve fist this strike happens in less than an hour as local 54 says it will happen after talks went no where, and broke off. so sadly we're going to see our second casino strike since 2004 it looks like. that one lasted 34 days. it was wider. this one will hit one casino and this north end of the casino has got bad news, show boat closed, revel closed and
now trump could close at least temporarily at 6:00. we will see if we see picket lines. but right now it is clear, empty and nice and they have drums playing. we have got hit with the massive thunder shower as we arrived here before 4:00. it will sound like another thunder shower when these people go on strikes because we watched preps at union office and one thing they will sign is a very loud drum, chris and lauren. >> steve, thank you. let's stay in new jersey and on the subject of the money because drivers in new jersey can keep enjoying their cheaper gas for now, state senators were expected to vote on the plan to hike garden state's gas tax by 23 cents a gallon while cutting the states sales tax by one percentage point. that vet did not happen but clock is still ticking before the state's transportation fund runs out of money. although state senate and assembly did not agree on each others bill, senate president steve sweeney does support a proposal to hike gas tax by 23
cents a gallon. he said money will fund the trust fund which is running dry. >> this is a serious vote. a lot of people are not happy. but at the end of the day when bridges start to shut down and road continue to crumble, you have to come up with a solution. >> by the way governor chris christie also supports the gas tax hike so it just seems if but when this will happen. good news for garden state though governor did just sign the state's $34.5 billion budget for new fiscal year. it looks lake there won't be a long budget impasse in pennsylvania, $31.5 billion spending bill on its way to governor wolf's desk and he says he will sign it. house passed it yesterday that includes increased funding for public schools, and there will be more money to help pennsylvania combat the opioid crisis. lawmakers still need to find a billion dollars in new revenue to find it. coming up, a developing story out of delaware, two men
