Governor Signs Legislation

On Thursday Governor Murphy signed into law the following bills:

S-1242, which requires that whenever public water systems issue boil water notices. A notice must also be given to the mayor and municipal clerk of each affected municipality as soon as possible but no later than one hour after the public water system learns of the emergency or other condition. The notice must be given by both email and phone. The law also outlines the requirements of the notice. The notice must also be given in the same manner when the boil water notices are rescinded. P.L. 2019, c. 279 took effect on January 9, 2020.

S-3594, which provides New Jersey employees’ who are members of the National Guard with the same employment protections that are provided to members of the United States Armed Forces called to active duty. P.L. 2019, c. 286 took effect on January 9, 2020.

A-5070, which authorizes certain municipalities to impose a 3.5% parking tax to fund mass transit pedestrian access projects. The tax would be in addition to parking taxes already authorized by law, except this new tax cannot be imposed whenever a special event parking tax surcharge is charged. The bill also allows the municipalities to provide certain discounts to their residents. This parking tax is available to municipalities with a population of 100,000 or greater. P.L. 2019, c. 289, which the League supported, took effect on January 9, 2020.
