The 9th District Delegation offered the following remarks upon the announcement that S-2261 was absolute vetoed by the Governor:

“Our Delegation has the distinct privilege of representing thousands of residents living in age-restricted communities who adamantly oppose any legislative attempt to permit Trenton to interfere with the operations of their communities, including how their home owner associations (HOAs) conduct business.

“While the provisions of S-2261 are innocuous and would not have any far-reaching impact, our Delegation has justifiable reasons to see it as the first in a possible package of bills that could have far broader implications for the age-restricted communities.

“By this we mean, that S-2261 was introduced as a result of the New Jersey Law Review Commission’s Final Report Relating to Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act issued on October 21, 2016.

“For years we have consistently communicated, in no uncertain terms, to our colleagues in Trenton that the residents of age-restricted communities in our District do not want or need Trenton oversight.

“These residents value their communities’ autonomy, including the ability to enforce age-restriction residency requirements and rightfully believe that Trenton has more important issues to focus on, such as reducing taxes and limiting the scope of government.

“Again, while the provisions of S-2261 are innocuous, we applaud the fact that the bill was vetoed, as its enactment could likely have signaled the advancement of additional bills that residents of age-restricted communities we represent would have found far more objectionable.”
