Margolis will discuss the increase and its effects on the state with New Jersey Policy Perspective’s Gordon MacInnes and John Galandak, president of the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey.
Power and Politics will also highlight upcoming legislation set to be discussed in the New Jersey Statehouse next week, as well as the State Attorney General’s decision not to defend gun laws in court.
