Karabinchak, Coughlin & DeAngelo Praise Tax Amnesty Revenue Exceeding Anticipated Projections: $282M

Assemblymen Sponsored Bill Implementing 3-month Tax Amnesty Program It's Tax Day and the numbers are in. The impact of the 3-month Tax Amnesty Program proposed by Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (Both D-Middlesex) and Wayne DeAngelo (D-Mercer, Middlesex) last April to help replenish state coffers amounts to $282 million in state revenue.

Full Assembly Approves Bill to Strengthen Equal Pay Protections for New Jersey Workers

Legislation Would Prohibit Discrimination Based On Salary History

Aiming to close the significant wage gap between women and men, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Joann Downey, Pamela Lampitt, Gary Schaer, Eric Houghtaling, Daniel Benson and Wayne DeAngelo to prohibit employers from requiring job applicants to disclose their salary history in the application process was approved Monday by the full Assembly by a vote of 53-24-2.
