NJ Senate Democrats Policy Progress

COVID-19 has caused major hardships, not only for our citizens but also for New Jersey’s business community. The State Senate recently unveiled an exciting new plan to invigorate new and existing businesses throughout the state as we work through what we hope are the waning months of the public health crisis.
The Senate Democrats have also been working on promoting greater government efficiency to benefit taxpayers through important legislation and also aim to bring early in-person voting to future elections in our state, a move that would strengthen the electoral process.
