N.J. civil service protections face elimination in Bucco bill

N.J. civil service protections face elimination in Bucco bill

Assembly Democratic majority leery of proposal

BY TOM HESTER SR.
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco (R-Morris) Friday said he has introduced two bills that are part of Gov. Chris Christie's 33-bill package that Republicans believe would lead to less government spending at the county and municipal level.

On measure (A-2954), would permit a municipal or county government to withdraw from participating in the state-mandated civil service system.

A second bill (A-2958), would allow a gross state income tax refund received by a homeowner to be credited against that taxpayer's delinquent property taxes.

A provision in A-2954 provides that in order for a municipal or county government to opt out of participating in the civil service system, a petition must be filed and a referendum on such a proposal placed before the voters. If approved, a government may not readopt civil service provisions for at least 10 years. The state Civil Service Commission would be responsible for promulgating the regulations in order to provide for an orderly transition in the personnel system in any county, municipality or school district.
