ASSEMBLY COMMUNITY SERVICES COMMITTEE
ASSEMBLY, No. 2605
with committee amendments
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: MAY 5, 1997
The Assembly Community Services Committee favorably reports Assembly Bill No. 2605 with committee amendments.
As amended by committee, this bill renames the Commission on Racism, Racial Violence and Religious Violence as the Commission on Racism, the Status of Minorities, and Racial Violence and Religious Violence. This is being done in order to reflect the commission's expanded scope under the bill.
In addition to its current functions, the commission shall study the status of New Jersey's ethnic and racial minorities in terms of their access to educational opportunities, health care, social services, housing and mortgage financing, employment opportunities, business financing, and fair treatment under the criminal justice system. The commission shall annually make recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature regarding one or more of these issue-areas.
The amendments are technical in nature and make a spelling correction.
This bill is identical to Senate Bill No. 1103 (Aca) which was amended and released by this committee on this date.
