A bill introduced by New Jersey Democrats would keep President Trump’s name off the state’s 2020 ballot unless he releases his tax returns, according to NorthJersey.com.
The new legislation, approved Thursday by the state Senate, was passed once before in 2017 only to be vetoed by then-Gov. Chris Christie. It would keep any candidate from appearing on the state ballot unless they make their tax returns public. Of note, New Jersey’s current governor, Phil Murphy, is a Democrat.
Similar legislation has been introduced in at least 28 states but has never been enacted, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, meaning New Jersey would be the first to impose such a disclosure requirement if its measure is also approved by the Assembly and signed by Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat. –NorthJersey.com
