18 Jun: Senate Gives Green Light To Codey/Girgenti Bill Facilitating Homeland Security Efforts Between New Jersey & New York

TRENTON – The full Senate today unanimously approved a measure sponsored by Senate President Richard J. Codey and Senator John A. Girgenti that would provide New Jersey with the legal mechanism to enter into a mutual aid agreement with other states, such as New York, allowing law enforcement to work together to provide increased security.

“New Jersey and New York are home to some of the most targeted infrastructure in the country, in terms of terrorist interests,” said Sen. Codey (D-Essex). “It’s essential that we have the tools necessary to work together to eliminate and respond to threats and potential dangers.”
