Governor Murphy signed S-435/A-392, which amends P.L.1946, c.138 and P.L.1957, c.183 to authorize local authorities, including sewerage authorities, municipal utilities authorities and county utilities authorities, to distribute live recordings of their public hearings in lieu of transcript requirement at no cost to an interested party in a format with video and audio, or just audio. The authorities are still required to comply with the Open Public Records Act. P.L. 2023, c. 39 took effect on May 8, 2023.
Please share this information If your municipality has a utility or sewerage authority.
