(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (D-Camden/Burlington), Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) and Assemblyman Daniel Benson (D-Mercer/Middlesex) to crack down on a double-dipping practice in local government was recently released from the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee.
The bill (A-1143) would prohibit local government agencies from employing any person currently on paid leave from a position with a local government agency of another county or municipality.
"New Jerseyans are tired of seeing their property tax dollars wasted on inappropriate payments to those abusing the system," said Lampitt. "This bill is a common-sense reform that will end an egregious double-dipping practice, saving taxpayer dollars in the process."

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
