Legislator's Handbook

Permanent URI for this collection

From the preface: "This handbook is designed to serve as an introduction to the Legislature and the legislative process for members of the New Jersey Senate and General Assembly. It provides a summary of the powers, privileges and prerogatives of members of the Legislature; an overview of legislative quarters; a description of the major laws, rules, traditions and customs governing the organization and operation of the Legislature; and identification of the assistance available to legislators in the performance of their duties. While legislators are encouraged to use this handbook as a read reference, it must be emphasized that this material is not a substitute for the official provisions to legislators or the legislative process as contained in the Constitution, the statutory law, the Legislative Code of Ethics, and the rules of the Senate or General Assembly. The Office of Legislative Services stands ready to expand upon the material contained in this handbook and to refer legislators to the appropriate provisions of the official sources."
