No Political Contributions on New Jersey Public Properties
A New Jersey law prohibiting candidates for elective public office from accepting political contributions on public property has been expanded.
Senate Bill 3166, which has been signed into law and is effective immediately, amends state law to prevent the solicitation or contribution of political donations to candidates and officeholders on various public properties.
The prohibited properties include any property owned by any county, municipality, board of education of a school district, fire district, authority, or other state or local entity, district or instrumentality.
The new law also grants jurisdiction to the Election Law Enforcement Commission to enforce this rule.
