NJ Government Records has Nearly Two-year backlog

Bloustein Professor and Local Govt. Research Center Assistant Director Marc Pfeiffer weighs in on the nearly two year backlog at https://nj.gov/grc/.

“The law was written with an appreciation for the technology at the time, for the procedures at the time,” Pfeiffer said. “Over 20 years, that drove changes in how government does its business, and there are changes for the government disclosure process. No one has stepped back, until now, to say maybe the processes we made 20 years ago are now ready for the 21st century.”
