New Jersey bill proposes modernizing state payroll

    A bill proposed by New Jersey Assemblyman Ruben J. Ramos, Jr. suggests streamlining the state’s payroll system to cut paper and administrative expenses.
    Bill A-3899 creates a three-year window for State Treasurer Andrew Eristoff to require direct deposit for all state employees, the Gloucester County Times reports. The bill also calls for all employee W2 forms to be available online, and will make exceptions for employees and departments that can’t accommodate the adjustments.
