Senator Sam Thompson (R-12) issued the following statement after voting in support of S-2855, the “Electronic Publication of Legal Notices Act,” in the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism & Historic Preservation Committee:

Sen. Sam Thompson voted in committee to allow the free electronic publication of legal notices as an alternative to paid postings in newspapers. (

“We can maintain government transparency and save property taxpayers’ money by allowing for free Internet postings of legal notices on town and county websites to replace paid newspaper publication requirements,” said Thompson. “I have never once read a published legal notice in a newspaper, and I’m willing to bet that most New Jerseyans haven’t either. It’s an archaic requirement that must be updated for the Internet age.”
