On Monday, the New Jersey legislature passed A6246/S4295 in the waning hours of the legislative session, sending the controversial bill to Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk. AAHOA has worked closely with the New Jersey Restaurant & Hospitality Association and the American Hotel & Lodging Association to oppose this legislation since its introduction, releasing a joint statement outlining the reverberating effects the bill would have on the hospitality industry should Murphy sign it into law.
AAHOA Members also have engaged on the issue, calling and emailing New Jersey legislators and Murphy to express their concerns with the bill. AAHOA is continuing to further our advocacy efforts against this legislation and we will keep our New Jersey members apprised of the latest updates. In the meantime, here is what AAHOA and other New Jersey business groups are saying about the bill:
