Looking Forward: NJ Legislature

We expect that time between Labor Day and the election to be a relatively slow period for legislative activity. The Assembly, with all 80 seats on the ballot in November, is not expected to quorum again until after the election.

We do expect, however, the State Senate to meet from time to time through the fall, including next week. On Tuesday, the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee will meet to take testimony from invited guests on the implementation of P.L. 2017, c. 133, the “Water Quality Accountability Act.” The Committee is not expected to take action on any bills. 

The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee will also meet to consider a number of bills. The League does not have a public position on any of these bills, but we are monitoring several. Likewise, the Senate Judiciary Committee will also meet and is anticipated to take action a number of nominations.  

The full Senate is scheduled for a voting session on Thursday, September 12. No board list has been released yet.

The League’s Government Affairs team will be at the Statehouse, acting as your eyes and ears and the League will advise you of any interesting developments.
