Assembly OKs Measures to Make it Easier to Control Property Taxes by Sharing Municipal Courts

Wisniewski, Watson Coleman, Burzichelli, Lampitt, Greenwald & Coughlin Measures Ask Voters to Approve Constitutional Amendment; Make Sharing Municipal Courts Simpler

(TRENTON) – The Assembly on Monday approved separate measures sponsored by Assembly Democrats John Wisniewski, Bonnie Watson Coleman, John Burzichelli, Pamela Lampitt, Louis Greenwald and Craig J. Coughlin that would make it easier for municipalities to cut property taxes by sharing municipal court services.

The resolution (ACR-88), sponsored by Wisniewski, Watson Coleman, Burzichelli, Lampitt and Greenwald, would ask New Jersey voters in the next general election to authorize amending the state Constitution to change how regional or shared municipal court judges are appointed in New Jersey to save taxpayers money.

The bill (A-1566), sponsored by Wisniewski and Coughlin, would enable the constitutional amendment to take effect, if and when approved by the voters.

“This is a great opportunity to remove a significant barrier to municipal service sharing and help create property tax relief by streamlining local government and cutting costs,” said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex).
