IN ENFORCEMENT SUPERVISORS ASSOCIATIONTHE MATTER OF STATE OF NEW JERSEY AND NEW JERSEY LAW
In this appeal, appellant challenged an interest arbitration salary award rendered pursuant to N.J.S.A. 34:13A-16.7(b), the "2% salary cap." We held that PERC did not err in affirming the arbitrator's acceptance of the State's scattergram and methodology to calculate the costs of the salary award to establish that it would not violate the 2% salary cap, and PERC's decision fully comported with Borough of New Milford and PBA Local 83, P.E.R.C. No. 2012-53, 38 N.J.P.E.R. ¶340, 2012 N.J. PERC LEXIS 18 at 13 (2012) and its progeny.
