New Jersey Federal Court Enjoins Donor Disclosure Law
On March 11, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey permanently enjoined the state from enforcing Senate Bill 150.
The bill was signed by the governor last June and was scheduled to take effect on October 15, 2019.
The dark money bill required independent expenditure committees to report contributions in excess of $10,000.
Additionally, the bill required reporting of expenditures in excess of $3,000 to the Election Law Enforcement Commission.
The order does not prevent the Legislature to revisit the issue with new legislation.
