Trenton — New Jersey Citizen Action released the following statement today urging the State Senate to pass S3807,which establishes a state-based health care exchange in New Jersey. The State Assembly passed equivalent legislation today but the Senate version was not taken up.

"We urge the Senate to pass this legislation immediately because we are on a critically short timeline," said Maura Collinsgru, convener of the New Jersey for Health Care Coalition and Health Care Program Director for New Jersey Citizen Action. "Not passing the bill before July 1st jeopardizes New Jersey's chances at creating a state-based health care exchange and marketplace to better serve the needs of New Jersey residents, and to protect them against destructive policies coming out of Washington. Defending and improving health care should be a policy priority for all Democrats and we applaud New Jersey's Assembly for passing their legislation that would establish the exchange. We urge the Senate to do same as soon as possible."
