What a privilege to see this bill signed today in Trenton. Lilly Ledbetter was on hand to give her nod of approval to Governor Phil Murphy as he penned his name on this bill. Today marks day 99 of Murphy’s first 100 days in office.
The new law is called the “Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act,” named after the longtime state senator who left her broadcasting job in 1994 after filing gender and age discrimination complaints with the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission. Allen retired from the Senate in January.
