TRENTON – A comprehensive package of ethics reform bills sponsored by Senate President Richard J. Codey were signed into law today by Governor Corzine. The bipartisan measures focus strongly on ethics training and education for the legislative branch and build on recent efforts to create greater transparency and efficiency in government.
“These bills are part of our ongoing effort to restore the public’s faith in government,” said Sen. Codey (D-Essex). “Mandatory ethics education and training will help avoid conflicts of interests and build on our efforts to create a more open and transparent government. It is essential that the public have confidence in our decision making.”
