October 27, 2008 7:33:28 AM PDT
The New Jersey Assembly is set to take up more than two dozen economic rescue bills. Aid for some homeowners facing foreclosure, a cash infusion to food pantries and more generous tax write-downs for businesses are among the bills up for votes Monday afternoon.

The Assembly has spent the month debating legislation that could lessen the impact of the global financial crisis on New Jerseyans.

The proposals range from help for the most needy to promoting clean energy and the green jobs that come with it.

The state Senate has yet to take up similar measures.
