PIRG In The News
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.
Peter Skopec, a program associate at New Jersey Public Interest Research Group, said the public should be concerned about Genetically Modified Organisms because most GMO crops are designed to lessen the need of pesticide and herbicide use but the chemicals can be very dangerous.
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.

This fall in New Jersey, thirteen out of fourteen Congressional seats are on the ballot: One in the Senate and all twelve Congressional House seats.
