Genova Burns Partners Rebecca Moll Freed, Rajiv D. Parikh and Avi D. Kelin explain the impact of the Elections Transparency Act in their recently published article "New Rules, New Risks" in ROI-NJ.

"The Elections Transparency Act that Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law last week marked the first major and sweeping changes to New Jersey’s campaign-finance and pay-to-play laws in almost two decades – when statewide pay-to-play laws first came on the scene). With the law, comes a myriad of new rules, risks, and perhaps even some uncertainty for contributors, government contractors, 501(c) organizations and campaigns."

"The ETA has received its fair share of attention, criticism, and support since it was first introduced in the New Jersey Legislature in June of 2022. And, although those following the legislation over these past months have witnessed many revisions along the way, like it or not, the ETA is now here to stay. New Jersey’s campaign-finance laws have broad reach, and thus the community as a whole will need to understand the ETA and its provisions."
