24 Jan: Rice Bills To Protect Tenants Become Law

TRENTON – Two measures, sponsored by Senator Ronald L. Rice, to ensure that tenants’ needs and rights are upheld became law today.

The first enacted bill, S-1082, requires managers of State financed housing to arrange meetings at least four times a year with tenants to discuss complaints. The law requires tenants to receive written notification of the meetings once every three months, and tenants would be able to cancel meetings if they have no complaints.
