By the late 60s, revenue sharing between federal, state and municipal governments became the focus of major policy. In 1966, the State's first broad based tax (the Sale and Use Tax) was enacted, yielding $25 million in revenues for municipalities. These revenues provided partial relief to the long since overburdened local property taxpayer until 1974 when the distribution was summarily terminated. League efforts to have the funding restored were unsuccessful.
Reform to NJ Employer-Employee Relations Act: Chapter 303, P.L. 1968 created a board of mediation and the New Jersey Public Employment Relations Commission to provide mechanisms for the prompt settlement of labor disputes, in order "to promote permanent, public and private employer-employee peace and the health, welfare, comfort and safety of the people of the State."
Having lost its lease in 1969, the League's offices were moved to 433 Bellevue Avenue, the location from which the organization operated until its next move in 1979.
