[ARCHIVED] Legislation Permitting Certain Municipalities to Opt-Out of Civil Service Advancing

On Thursday, the Assembly State and Local Government Committee unanimously approved A-1335/S-2667, which would permit municipalities with a population under 2,500 to withdraw from Civil Service by ordinance. 

The League testified in support of this legislation as it gives municipalities, many of whom joined Civil Service before today’s existing state and federal labor law protections. 

Having passed the Senate unanimously, the bill now awaits consideration by the full Assembly.
