Vacant Property Bill Also A Priority
The New Jersey Assembly and the Senate voted to send both the Sandy Bill of Rights (S1306) and a “Vacant Property” bill that authorizes municipalities to impose penalties on creditors that fail to remedy code violations of vacant foreclosed properties in a timely matter (A347) to Governor Christie.
Contact the Governor TODAY and request that he sign both pieces of legislation.

Hello, my name is [FIRST & LAST NAME] from [TOWN]. I’m calling to ask Governor Christie to sign S1306, the Sandy Bill of Rights, and A347, which addresses foreclosures. Both bills will help strengthen New Jersey’s communities and I urge the governor to sign both without delay! Thank you!
