New Jersey Statehouse Update

Friday, May 20th  - Weekly Update

This week, Governor Phil Murphy activated price gouging laws in response to the nationwide baby formula shortage. Under the order, all state agencies are required to ease supply chain issues and limit actions that would reduce availability of formulas, while drawing on federal resources to accomplish these goals.

The Governor also announced his support for a police licensing program that would require all law enforcement in NJ to hold valid licenses in order to be employed as officers in the state. The proposed police licensing program would require certain uniform standards for police officers to become, or continue to be, an active law enforcement officer in the state. Over 40 other states have a form of licensing for police officers. The measure must still go through the legislative process, but the Governor has indicated he's supportive of the proposed legislation.
