Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States Department of New Jersey

 
 




A strong committee system is one of the hallmarks of the New Jersey Senate. When a bill is introduced in either the Senate or the Assembly, it is sent to a committee for study and to receive public comment. The committee makes an initial determination if the proposal should go forward in the legislature. If it votes to do so, the committee can suggest amendments to the bill, approve it for further action by the full Senate, Assembly, or disapprove it.
If you are interested in a particular bill to be heard by one of Senator Vitale's committees, and would like to testify, you should notify our office so that we can assist you in scheduling your testimony.
