NJ Politicians Looking to Get Back In PERS

Per Politico last month:

There’s a new effort underway in Trenton to reopen New Jersey’s pension system to politicians. State Sen. Joe Cryan (D-Union) introduced legislation Monday that would allow politicians who held pensionable public jobs before they were elected to a public office to re-enroll in the system from which they‘ve been barred for almost 14 years.

Today those politicians took the next step as the bill was transferred to the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee:

S4250 Changes PERS membership eligibility for certain elected public officials and provides for PERS reenrollment.
