14 May: Kenny Bill Advances To Pursue Corruption

TRENTON – A bill, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Bernard F. Kenny Jr., to increase the statute of limitations from five years to seven years for crimes involving political corruption was approved today (5-0) by the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

“With this bill (S-1224) prosecutors will have consistency while they are pursuing ongoing political corruption probes,” said Senator Kenny, D-Hudson. “This bill will set a uniform statute of limitations so political corruption can be examined in the same time frame as other crimes such as bribery and official misconduct.”
