New Jersey's OPRA "Open Public Records Act" and OPMA "Open Public Meetings Act" are the citizens' window into the inner workings of New Jersey government. 

The Open Public Records Act "OPRA" provides guidelines for the dissemination of “public” government records.  Not every government record is “public” and there are restrictions.  But for the most part, OPRA does a good job in providing record access.  Unfortunately, sometimes even the simplest request for a "public" document can be a nightmare for many citizens.  If you know your rights under OPRA and the record is “public”… you should have an easier time getting the requested information.   Learn more about OPRA.

The Open Public Meetings Act “OPMA” sets a standard for government meetings, i.e. City Council meetings, Freeholders meetings, etc.  Learn more about OPMA.

New Jersey Politicians Cannot use Political Campaign Funds to pay for their Criminal Defense.

More bad news for the New Jersey politicians arrested in the July 23, 2009 Federal investigation.  The New Jersey Supreme Court rejected a request from a former state legislator to use campaign funds to pay for his criminal defense.

Newspapers reported that former Senator Wayne Bryant (D-Camden), who was convicted in 2008 of federal bribery and wire fraud wanted to use some of his $640,000 campaign contributions to pay his legal fees.  The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission refused Bryant's request.  The New Jersey Court of Appeals upheld the Election Law Enforcement Commission.
