Wimberly, Singleton, Holley, Tucker, Sumter & Quijano Bill to Require Racial and Ethnic Impact Statements in Proposed Legislation Goes to Governor

Measure Aimed at Reducing Disparities Within Criminal Justice System
(TRENTON) - Legislation Assembly Democrats Benjie Wimberly, Troy Singleton, Jamel Holley, Cleopatra Tucker, Shavonda Sumter and Annette Quijano sponsored to encourage lawmakers to consider the impact proposed legislation would have on racial and ethnic minorities was approved by the full Senate, 34-0, on Thursday.

"The disparity between the number of minorities in the general population and the number of minorities in the prison population is a civil rights issue that warrants far more attention," said Wimberly (D-Bergen/Passaic). "In a state where black people are 15 percent of the general population but 60 percent of the prison population - a statistic largely due to a failed and misguided war on drugs - we have a responsibility to give closer scrutiny to how the policies the state enacts affect racial and ethnic minorities."

Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Benjie Wimberly, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Sheila Oliver, Cleopatra Tucker, Annette Quijano and Gordon Johnson to ensure that women- and minority-owned businesses in New Jersey have equal access to state contracts was approved Monday by the Assembly.

"While progress has been made, women- and minority-business owners continue to face challenges that limit their ability to grow," said Wimberly (D-Bergen/Passaic). "The provisions in this legislation are necessary to ensure that the equality of opportunity guaranteed by federal and state law are available to minority-owned and women-owned businesses in this state."
