New Jersey Gov. to press campaign reform

The Press of Atlantic City reports that the Governor is proposing (or concurring in a Republican proposal) to ban "pay for play."

McGreevey also plans to address campaign-finance reform by offering support for a legislative plan that would bar political contributors from obtaining contracts with state, county or local government.

In recent weeks, Republicans have pressured McGreevey to support a "pay for play" bill that bars campaign contributors from receiving state contracts. The bill passed the state Senate in June but is waiting to be posted in the Democratic-controlled state Assembly.
