1-15-09 IMO the Appeal by Earle Asphalt Company (A-37-08)
Judgment of the Appellate Division is affirmed substantially for the reasons expressed in Judge Skillman’s written opinion. Chapter 51 of the Campaign Contributions and Expenditure Reporting Act is constitutional. The Department of Treasury properly rejected Earle Asphalt’s claim to an exemption from the disqualification because, even though the contractor undertook steps to obtain reimbursement of its disqualifying contribution within thirty days, it did not receive that reimbursement within that thirty-day period.
