At a meeting today, the NJ Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) voted to require non-profit entities to make the annual disclosure pursuant to Chapter 271.

The vote was 2-1 in favor of keeping nonprofits in the disclosure law and for extending the deadline. UPDATE: Here is the Attorney General's opinion.
