Senate Passes Geographic-based Reopening Legislation

COVID-19 Legislative Updates Legislative Updates
On January 28, the Senate passed S- 3093 (Gopal/Sweeney), which establishes a county-based mitigation plan to allow businesses to operate during a pandemic.

The CCSNJ supported the bill when it was heard in the Senate Commerce Committee and Assembly Appropriations Committee, testifying that a statewide, one-size-fits-all approach, that refuses to consider the vast disparities in health metrics throughout different geographical areas of the State is not the way to continue to move forward with the our economic recovery. 

The bill would establish three categories of risk, using health data that will be organized by color-coded phases — red, yellow and green— to allow business to operate during a pandemic, similar to what other states have implemented.

The bill now awaits consideration by the full Assembly.
