Yesterday, the result of over three years of research and dedication to ALL members of the Police and Firemen’s Retirement System, came to its final step towards reality when the N.J. General Assembly voted 67-2-7 and the N.J. Senate voted 34-2 to send A-3671 / S-5 to the Governor for his consideration of this historic legislation. This vote tally dwarfed the affirmation vote from last years approval, showing the additional support we have garnished for our cause since last year.
Yesterday, March 22, 2018, Assembly bill A-3671 was reported out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee with bi-partisan support. A-3671 is the Assembly version of S-5, our legislation to transfer management of the PFRS to the PFRS Board of Trustees. Shortly after it’s release yesterday, A-3671 was placed on the board list for consideration by the full General Assembly this Monday, March 26 at 1:00 p.m.
