CCSNJ Testifies on County-Based Reopening Legislation

219th Legislative Session COVID-19 Legislative Updates Legislative Updates

On November 9, CCSNJ President and CEO Christina Renna testified before the Assembly Appropriations Committee in support of A- 4910 (Burzichelli).

The bill establishes county-based mitigation plan to allow businesses to operate during pandemic. As one of the first organizations to put forth a regional approach to reopening in May of this year, the CCSNJ was proud to support this bill. The plan looks at certain health data over a seven-day rolling average, to establish three categories of risk that will be organized by color-coded phases — red, yellow and green – and decisions to open or close businesses would be based on that data. This mirrors the Pennsylvania regional plan, and several others across the country, which the CCSNJ has been urging the Administration to consider since the spring.

In her testimony, Ms. Renna, noted this bill will give businesses the opportunity to stay open if safe to do so, instead of using a one-size-fits-all approach, while maintaining the health and safety of all New Jersey residents.
