Zwicker “Voting Precinct Transparency Act” Clears Committee

In an effort to maintain a fair election process in New Jersey, legislation promoting voting transparency sponsored by Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker was advanced by the Assembly State and Local Government Committee on Thursday.

“Some states do a great job of providing precinct-level election results, others do a great job of providing precinct geographies,” said Zwicker (D-Somerset/Mercer/Middlesex/Hunterdon). “However, most states don’t compile either, and the few who do, don’t do so in a way that is well-standardized. Currently, New Jersey is one of these states that doesn’t compile and release them all. This bill would change that and indeed, would make New Jersey a leader in transparency about election data.”

"Bot" Measure Would Prohibit Misleading Communication Involving Purchases, Elections

Legislation Aims to Protect New Jersey Residents

Looking to strike a balance between innovation, transparency, consumer protection and business bottom lines, a bill prohibiting the use of an online “bot” to communicate or interact for the purpose of misleading during a purchase, or to influence an election, cleared the Assembly Science, Innovation and Technology Committee Thursday.

“While I support and champion using innovation and technology to conduct business and provide automated access and messaging for consumers, there has to be a balance,” said Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker (D-Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex and Somerset) who sponsored by the bill. “Consumers have a right to know whether they are interacting with an actual person or a computer—it’s just that simple.”

Mazzeo, Armato, Zwicker & Murphy Hurricane Sandy Relief Legislation Advanced by Assembly Panel

Providing relief for New Jersey residents who were affected by Superstorm Hurricane Sandy, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Vincent Mazzeo, John Armato, Andrew Zwicker and Carol Murphy was approved by the Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee on Monday.

“Though a significant amount of time has passed, we fully recognize that far too many of our families and local businesses are still struggling to regain what was lost during the devastating superstorm,” said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). “There is certainly more work to be done, but these bills are a great step forward in helping our residents rebuild.”
