NEW BRUNSWICK - On Feb. 15, President Thomas H. Prol testified before the New Jersey Council on Local Mandates regarding a complaint filed by the New Jersey Association of Counties challenging provisions of the Criminal Justice Reform Act.
President Prol urged the Council to dismiss the complaint, arguing that the Act does not amount to an unfunded mandate.
In a close 4-3 vote, the Council upheld the Association's amicus position and dismissed the challenge to Criminal Justice Reform.
