Lampitt, Greenwald & Benson Bill to Crack Down on Local Double-Dippers Gets Committee Approval

(TRENTON) – Legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt (D-Camden/Burlington), Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington) and Assemblyman Daniel Benson (D-Mercer/Middlesex) to crack down on a double-dipping practice in local government was recently released from the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee.

The bill (A-1143) would prohibit local government agencies from employing any person currently on paid leave from a position with a local government agency of another county or municipality.

“New Jerseyans are tired of seeing their property tax dollars wasted on inappropriate payments to those abusing the system,” said Lampitt. “This bill is a common-sense reform that will end an egregious double-dipping practice, saving taxpayer dollars in the process.”
