2021 will feature New Jersey gubernatorial and legislative races, so the year promises to be another important one for the ever-evolving world of campaign finance.
Do you or your clients contribute to political campaigns?
Do you represent entities seeking government contracts?
New Jersey has the strictest pay-to-play laws in the country. With the proliferation of county and municipal pay-to-play ordinances different from the state rules, compliance with the pay-to-play regulations at all government levels has become increasingly difficult. Non-compliance can result in the loss of government contracts and the ability to participate in redevelopment projects. Fines and criminal sanctions can also result. As a result, businesses (including law firms) need to establish controls and monitor corporate and employee contributions so unintended violations do not occur.
If you represent any entity seeking government contracts at the state, county, or municipal levels, or if you represent businesses or law firms that contribute to political campaigns, you need to understand the latest developments in campaign finance rules, so clients can avoid potential violations.
