This bill changes income standards in the law establishing the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (PAAD) program and the New Jersey gross income tax to exempt amounts received as remuneration, including but not limited to compensatory and punitive damages, received under a judgment or settlement agreement from any jurisdiction, which compensate a victim of an involuntary internment. Any accumulated earnings or accrued interest distributed under any such judgment or settlement agreement are also excluded from gross income and from income for the purpose of determining eligibility for the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled program. The term involuntary internment is intended to be broadly interpreted and will cover remuneration paid to victims that were subject to inhumane abuse and suffering under a variety of circumstances, including persons victimized under conditions of forced labor.
