TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick says more than ever legislation requiring governor and legislative leaders meet quarterly and report to the public is needed.
“Joint efforts on both sides of the aisle are extremely important to the success of government,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “Corporations are required to hold board of director meetings. The state should also be required to report to the people. I encourage the public to contact their representatives urging them to support the legislation.”
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.
