New Jersey Annual Pay-to-Play Report Due March 30

March 2010

Entities that received $50,000 or more in the aggregate in 2009 through contracts with state and local government agencies in New Jersey must file an annual Pay-to-Play Report with the state's Election Law Enforcement Commission by March 30, 2010. Reports are due even if the entity and its related companies, officers, directors, partners and PACs made no reportable contributions. If the company or its affiliates made reportable contributions (i.e. contributions aggregating to more than $300 to most state and local candidates, political committees and party committees), then the annual report must include detailed information about the entity's state and local government contracts.

The Annual Report (Form BE) and related pay-to-play information can be found on the website of ELEC at
