On Monday, May 9, Governor Murphy signed into law legislation that increases the contribution limits by counties and municipalities to volunteer first aid, ambulances, and rescue squads. P.L. 2022, c. 12 increases the maximum amount that municipalities and counties can annually contribute to an incorporated volunteer first aid, ambulance, or rescue company from $70,000 to $125,000. The threshold to increase additional funds, if the volunteer first aid, ambulance, or rescue squad is experiencing extraordinary need, increases from $35,000 to $70,000. This new law took effect upon the Governor’s signing.
