N.J.: Stay updated on pay-to-play changes

March 1, 2024

There were sweeping changes for New Jersey’s campaign-finance and pay-to-play laws in 2023. Gov. Phil Murphy signed the New Jersey Elections Transparency Act, P.L. 2023, c. 30, into law on April 3, 2023, and later he signed Executive Order 333 into effect on June 15, 2023.

Although the ETA has simplified and streamlined New Jersey’s pay-to-play laws, government contractors still need to pay careful attention to the law and its requirements.
