McCutcheon v FEC was decided on April 2, 2014. The decision eliminated certain campaign finance regulations that limited the amount wealthy donors could give.
U.S. PIRG research found that this ruling could bring $1 billion in additional campaign contributions from fewer than 2,800 elite donors through the 2020 election cycle.
The New Jersey Public Interest Research Group is working with state activist groups to prevent fracking in the Delaware River Watershed.
According to a press release by NJPIRG, the organization is working with Rep. Rush Holt, D-12, to appeal to the Delaware River Basin Commission, which could prevent drilling in the area.
Olivia Harry, fracking coordinator for NJPIRG, said they were reaching out to students for tabling. So far, the organization has collected more than 700 signatures and has gotten 800 students to call Gov. Chris Christie’s office.
A group of Rutgers students with the New Jersey Public Interest Research Group (NJPIRG) Student Chapters called on Stop & Shop to label its store-brand products for ingredients derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) Friday at a rally outside of the Highland Park Stop & Shop.

NJPIRG is a nonpartisan, statewide, student-run nonprofit that has been working on behalf of students since 1972. Over the past 30 years we have won concrete results for students.
Our New Voters Project has registered over 11,300 voters since 2010. Energy Service Corps has taught over 10,000 K-12 kids about energy efficiency. We've had 15 cities in New Jersey to go on record agsint corpoate money in politics, including North Brunswick, Princeton, Highland Park, Essex County, and Newark.
NJPIRG is able to be so effective because thousands of Rutgers students pitch in $11.20 on their term bills. Every 3 years, Rutgers students must come together to reaffirm the waiveable fee on our term bills. Students voted to keep NJPIRG Student Chapters at Rutgers for another 3 years!
