A major innovation in the ethics reform legislation enacted by the Legislature in 2004 was the New Jersey Fair and Clean Elections Pilot Project, P.L.2004, c.121 (hereafter, the Act). The Legislature declared that:

It is possible that a voluntary clean money campaign finance system for legislative candidates would strengthen democracy in New Jersey by removing access to wealth as a major determinant of a citizen's influence within the political process. . . . Establishment of a clean elections pilot project would provide selected candidates for the offices of member of the General Assembly with equal resources with which to communicate with voters, reverse the escalating cost of elections and free those candidates from the chore of raising money, thus allowing them more time to conduct their official duties and communicate with their constituents. . . . This pilot
project, based on the laws currently in effect in Maine and Arizona, would be a significant step towards strengthening public confidence in this State's democratic processes and institutions. P.L.2004, c.121, §2.
