The following statement can be attributed to ACLU-NJ Deputy Policy Director Jim Sullivan

“It’s shameful that the majority of the New Jersey Legislature voted in favor of S2930/A4045 – a bill that will severely restrict access to government records and limit the public’s ability to hold elected officials accountable – despite overwhelming opposition from community members, stakeholders, advocates, and 81% of voters from across the ideological spectrum. Legislative leaders should be strengthening mechanisms for government transparency, not undermining them in backroom deals shielded from public scrutiny. To protect transparency and accountability, we urge Governor Murphy to veto S2930/A4045.”
