Tell NJ Lawmakers to Protect Government Transparency

Take Action

Transparency and government accountability are fundamental to democracy, but New Jersey lawmakers are currently trying to rush through S2930/A4045, a bill that would gut the Open Public Records Act (OPRA).

If this bill passes, it will severely limit the public’s ability to access public records and hold government officials accountable.

New Jersey must remain committed to the principles of democracy and the public’s right to access public records. To do that, we must not let this bill rollback the protections of OPRA.

Send a message to your elected officials and urge them to protect government transparency and accountability by voting NO on S2930/A4045.

No Rollbacks on OPRA; Vote No on S2930/A4045

There is no democracy without government transparency. By requiring overly specific information for requests, removing mandatory fee shifting provisions, and restricting access to emails and call logs, S2930/A4045 severely limits the public’s ability to access public information.

I’m urging NJ Lawmakers to protect transparency in New Jersey’s government, and VOTE NO on S2930/A4045.

New Jersey must remain committed to the principles of democracy, including supporting the right of the public to request access to government information. New Jersey lawmakers can reaffirm the Garden State’s commitment to transparent government by voting NO on S2930/A4045.
