QUIGLEY/SCHAER BILL PROHIBITING CAMPAIGN DONATIONS FROM LEGISLATIVE AIDES TO LEGISLATORS ADVANCES
(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly members Joan
M. Quigley and Gary S. Schaer that would prohibit a legislative aide
from making a campaign contribution to his or her employer was
unanimously released today by the Assembly State Government Committee.
"Legislative aides should never feel pressure - real or
imagined - to make a political contribution to preserve their job," said
Quigley (D-Hudson), chairwoman of the committee. "This is a necessary
step towards protecting the rights of these workers and improving the
ethical climate of Trenton."
Under the Quigley/Schaer measure (A-2447) any legislative
aide, or their immediate family, who is either employed in a
legislator's district office or otherwise compensated by a lawmaker,
would be prohibited from making a monetary contribution to that
legislator's campaign account. Legislators likewise would be prohibited
from accepting campaign donations from staff members. This restriction
would remain in effect for two years following the aide's termination of
employment or services.
Legislators or legislative aides who violate this
prohibition would face fines of up to $10,000 and 18 months in jail.
"The notion of quid pro quo employment in the Legislature
must be put to rest," said Schaer (D-Passaic), the committee's
vice-chairman. "Only by policing our own actions more thoroughly will
we be able to rebuild the public's trust in their elected officials."
The measure, which also is sponsored by Assemblyman Jay
Webber (R-Morris), now heads to the Assembly Speaker, who decides if and
when to post it for a floor vote.
