Bill to Transfer PFRS to a Labor-Management Board on Governor’s Desk

Your immediate assistance is needed. As we previously reported, S-5/A-3671, which transfers the management of Police and Fire Retirement System (PFRS) to a Board of Trustees with majority labor control, now awaits action by the Governor. Governor Murphy has until on or about May 10 to act on this bill. It is imperative that the Governor’s office hear from local officials on this very concerning proposal.

Please either call the Governor at 609-292-6000 or your contact in the Governor’s IGA office to express opposition to this bill until it is amended to add the necessary safeguards advocated by the League, the Conference of Mayors (NJCM), and the Association of Counties (NJAC).  

For more information please see our March 29 alert.
