Mukherji & Pintor Marin Bill to Increase Regulatory Transparency Approved by Assembly

(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Raj Mukherji and Eliana Pintor Marin to make the process of crafting government regulations more transparent in New Jersey cleared the full Assembly on Thursday, 77-0.

The bill (A-2581) would require the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) to maintain a public online database summarizing all state rulemaking actions. The searchable database would identify the number, nature and status of all pending or proposed government regulations put forth by a state agency.

"Improving the accountability and overall quality of government is contingent upon our ability to make it more transparent and accessible to New Jersey residents," said Mukherji (D-Hudson). "This bill will facilitate transparency in our state and encourage civic engagement as we work to enact rules that will safeguard public health and safety."
