Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-Morris) stated the following about the Senate Democrats’ decision this afternoon to hold bipartisan transparency bills that he co-sponsors with Senator Loretta Weinberg:
“I am disappointed that New Jersey residents will have to wait until next year to benefit from dire improvements to the state’s primary transparency and accountability laws. But I will continue working with Senator Weinberg in a bipartisan fashion to update the Open Public Records and Meetings acts to address more public agencies, newer technologies and the often arduous process of obtaining public information.
“We will make sure both bills are at their best before their next vote. We know how important it is to get this bills right so that all necessary changes are made the first time around.
“There are some great components to this legislation and there is also room for more innovation and balance. I will do whatever it takes to provide people with a transparent government that works for them.”
