2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would make the Governor subject to the provisions of the "New Jersey Conflicts of Interest Law," N.J.S.A.52:13D-12 et seq. It would provide that the Governor would be subject to ethical standards that are substantially similar to those that apply under current law to members of the Legislature and to officers and employees of the Executive Branch. The bill would require the State Ethics Commission to prepare a code of ethics applicable to the Governor. The bill would permit the State Ethics Commission to impose fines on the Governor for ethics violations. In addition, the bill rescinds Executive Order No. 77 (McGreevey) of 2003 and provides that the Governor will not alter, by executive order, a code of ethics, or otherwise, any provision of that law or of any code of ethics promulgated under that law by the State Ethics Commission that applies to the Governor or to the staff of the office of the Governor.
