Ridgewood NJ, In response to news that the New Jersey State Senate plans to vote Thursday on legislation requiring all candidates for President or Vice President of the United States to release their tax returns in order to appear on the ballot in New Jersey, Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-26) announced that he will attempt to amend the bill on the floor, so that it applies to all State Senate and General Assembly candidates as well.

I would vote ‘yes’ if the Senate accepts my proposal to change the bill so that it also applies to all 120 State legislative offices.”
