By a vote of 4-0, the Senate State Government Committee amended and released S-106, which revises the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA), and S-107, which revises the Open Public Records Act (OPRA). The League testified, along with the New Jersey Association of Counties and the School Boards Association in opposition.
The bills have been referenced to the Senate Budget Committee. Senator Weinberg made a commitment to continue to work with the stakeholders, including the League, over the summer to address the remaining issues. We are currently reviewing the amendments and will provide a detailed analysis.
