NJ Rev Stat § 34:6-158 (2013) What's This?

34:6-158 Findings, declarations relative to procurement of apparel.

1.The Legislature finds and declares that:

a.A significant portion of the apparel industry has a history of poor conditions for its workers;

b.The largest part of the apparel purchases of the State of New Jersey are for State employee uniforms, which should project a positive image for the State and help to instill pride on the part of State employees;

c.The State of New Jersey has, as a market participant, a compelling interest in guaranteeing that these uniforms and all of the other apparel it acquires are produced in the United States of America in conditions which are conducive to the reliable provision of high quality apparel and of which the State, its citizens, and its employees may be proud; and

d.It is, therefore, an appropriate policy to establish an Apparel Procurement Board to ensure that the State's interests as a market participant are protected with respect to apparel contracts entered into by the State and its instrumentalities.
