Elections Transparency Act Passes New Jersey Senate
A bill overhauling the state’s campaign finance laws and the composition of its ethics agency is making its way through the New Jersey Legislature.
Senate Bill 2866, the Elections Transparency Act, doubles contribution limits to candidates; allows Gov. Murphy to appoint an entirely new slate of commissioners to the Election Law Enforcement Commission without Senate approval; and requires the reporting of all independent expenditure contributions in excess of $7,500.
The act was introduced last June and passed by the Senate on March 20.
