On January 4, 2021, Governor Murphy vetoed A-4525/S-3128 (Freiman, Mazzeo, Verrelli, Houghtaling/Pou, Sarlo, Cruz-Perez) which would have expanded opportunities for restaurants, bars, distilleries and breweries to provide outdoor dining and permits certain farms to adjust operations in response to COVID-19 public health emergency. This bill passed both Houses of the Legislature unanimously late last year.
The CCSNJ is disappointed in the Governor's veto and had supported this bill with hopes that continued ease of regulations would allow these struggling industries greater flexibility to survive the pandemic. To read the Governor's veto message, click here.
