Bramnick renews push for emergency legislative session to pass quarterly meetings by government officials

Jon Bramnick

TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick says more than ever legislation forcing the governor and legislative leaders to meet quarterly and report to the public is needed.

“Finding common ground and talking to one another is extremely important to the success of government,” said Bramnick (R-Union).  “Corporations are required to hold board of director meetings.  It’s time for the leadership in Trenton do the same.”

Bramnick’s bill (A1959) specifically calls for the Senate president and minority leader and the Assembly speaker and minority leader to meet with the governor at least once a quarter of each calendar year to discuss the state of the state, pending legislation, ideas for legislation, public policy issues, and any matter of interest to residents. Following a private session, the meeting will be open to the public where people can ask questions. The leaders will also issue a joint statement highlighting their progress.
