On May 23, 2016, 1 p.m. the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee will hear and take testimony on Senate Bill No. 727, a measure that would require State departments to cause their “data sets” to be uploaded to an “easily navigable Internet website.”  The bill is sponsored by South Jersey Democrats Nilsa Cruz-Perez and Jeff Van Drew.

The hearing, which will be held in Committee Room 7 on the second floor of the State House Annex in Trenton, is open to the public and those who attend may present the Committee with oral testimony.  As an alternative, anyone can submit written testimony via fax to 609-777-2998 or e-mail to [email protected].

Those who wish to attend are cautioned to first call the Committee’s office at 609-847-3890 to make sure that S-727 is still on the agenda and to verify that the hearing hasn’t been moved or postponed.
