‘Path To Progress’ Website Launched In Support of Fiscal Reform Proposals

Provides Forum for Recommendations by the Economic & Policy Workgroup to Reduce Costs, Find Efficiencies & Maintain Fiscal Stability

Trenton – Following through on the recommendations by a blue ribbon panel that address the state’s most challenging fiscal problems, a website entitled “PathToProgressNJ: Policies To Save New Jersey” was launched today to provide a forum on the proposals to avert looming financial crises, help maintain fiscal stability, reduce the costs of government and allow the state to support vital needs and services.

The bipartisan workgroup reassessed the fairness, adequacy, efficiency and affordability of the state’s current revenue structure across all levels of government and reexamined the delivery of government services to develop its findings and recommendations.

The product of seven months of work by the 25-member panel of experts in public finances, the release of the 30 recommendations marks the first step of an ongoing process to involve stakeholders and the general public in an informed debate about how to put New Jersey on the path to progress.

The website provides a source of information on the severity of the fiscal problems that confront state and local government as well as explanations on the proposals to address them.

New Jersey Attorney General Porrino announced the “Safe Stop NJ” program.  The goal of the program is to have every traffic stop to end safely for all involved by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair.  A link to the program can be found here http://www.safestopnj.com/

 

Attorney General’s Message

 

Our goal is for every traffic stop to end safely for all involved. To achieve this goal, we have taken various steps, all of which have been directed at law enforcement: All police officers in New Jersey must complete annual training on de-escalation techniques, cultural awareness and implicit bias through our CLEAR Institute; thousands of police officers now wear body-worn cameras; we have improved protocols for investigation of police-involved use of deadly force; and we have promoted innovative community policing through hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and awards. Our new “Safe Stop” initiative takes the next step by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair. Please help us make every stop a Safe Stop.
