Press Release from the NJGOP
Trenton, NJ – The fix is in! Governor Murphy and legislative Democrats are fast-tracking a law that will upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of New Jersey businesses and families The law prevents independent contractors from working for businesses unless the contractor is hired as an official employee of the business. The move will generate millions in new taxes, proving it’s just another Democratic tax grab at the expense of New Jersey’s hard working families. (NOTE: The Informed Conservative published an article on this last week. Read the article HERE).

Apparently New Jersey being rated one of the worst business climates and thousands of businesses, jobs and residents leaving the sate is not good enough for Governor Murphy, State Senate President Sweeney (D, Gloucester) and other legislative Democrats. State Senate Bill 4204, sponsored by Sweeney, would end businesses using independent contractors. The law will have a negative impact on companies that use project based professional contract consultants or freelancers. Should this bill pass companies will no longer be able to work with professional contract consultants meaning that projects will leave New Jersey and jobs and tax revenues will leave the state. It’s a lose/lose for New Jersey businesses, a lose/lose for professional contractors and those who work in the “gig economy” and a lose/lose for the State of New Jersey.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal released the LGBT Equality Directive instructing the state’s 38,000 law enforcement officers on how to deal with the LGTB community.

Wouldn’t you or I be arrested for giving police a false name or information?

After failing to get enough support in the New Jersey State Senate to get a “legalized” recreational marijuana bill passed State Senate President Steve Sweeney (D, Gloucester) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Nicholas Scutari (D, Middlesex) have introduced a constitutional amendment to have a ballot question to “legalize” marijuana on the ballot in 2020. There is just one problem. New Jersey voters cannot “legalize” marijuana while it remains federally illegal.
