Bramnick calls for standing cybersecurity committee

TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick today called for a standing legislative committee on cybercrime and cybersecurity.  The committee would focus on laws and policies aimed at protecting New Jersey’s businesses, local government and citizens.

“Computer viruses, hackers and other technology-related incidents affect our lives in ways that range from inconvenient to life-threatening,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “As our dependence on data networks increases, cybercriminals find new opportunities to exploit people.  A standing committee focused on these constant changes would help the state better protect the public.”

Cyberattacks are an increasing threat in New Jersey:

– Four Atlantic City online casino gaming sites were targeted by a hacker last July, who promised further disruption unless a ransom was paid in Bitcoin.

– Hackers crippled Rutgers University computer networks at least four times in 2014 and 2015.

– Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey notified nearly 840,000 members in 2013 that their personal information may have been compromised after laptops were stolen from the company’s Newark headquarters.

– In April 2015, the international activist group Anonymous shut down several law-enforcement sites and released the names, home addresses and phone numbers of police officers after the death of a Vineland resident who died while in police custody.

The 2015 annual report by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center found that New Jersey suffered the 8th highest number of cyberattacks of any state, which accounts for the 9th largest financial loss in the country.

Bramnick: Watch out for fake IRS callers

WESTFIELD, N.J. –Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick has received reports of attempted fraud by people impersonating IRS investigators.  Scammers, claiming to be from the IRS, make unsolicited called demanding payment for fake tax bills to get cash, usually through a debit bard or wire transfer from their victims. 

“No other scam has continued to persist as long as the IRS scam,” said Bramnick (R-Union).  “Don’t be fooled.  The IRS would never call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill, nor would it ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.  If you get one of these surprising phone calls, hand up and report it to authorities immediately.”

The IRS’s website suggest reporting incidents to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml or by calling 800-366-4484.

 Leader Bramnick to Receive NJ’s Highest Arts Education Award Today – The Governor’s Award for Lifetime Contribution in Arts Education

TRENTON, N.J. – Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick has been selected as a recipient of the Governor’s Award for Lifetime Contribution in Arts Education for his efforts in promoting the importance of the arts in New Jersey’s school system. The award is presented by the New Jersey Arts Education Partnership.

 Bramnick, R-Union, will receive the award during a 4:30 p.m. ceremony held in Patriots Theater at the Trenton War Memorial on Thursday, May 26. The event is a partnership of the New Jersey Arts Education Partnership, the Department of Education, Art Pride New Jersey Foundation, the Department of State and the N.J. State Council on the Arts.

 Bramnick sponsored the law signed by Gov. Christie in January that requires school districts to weigh visual and performing arts courses equally to other subjects. The classes now receive the same level of importance in determining a student’s grade point average (GPA).

 Bramnick Stands Against Discrimination

PolitickerNJ.com: July 17, 2015. “After Garrett Flap, GOP Leader Bramnick Donates $5K to Traier’s LD34 Campaign

In the aftermath of a news report concerning alleged homophobic comments made by U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-5), Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-21) contributed $5,000 today to the LD34 campaign of Passaic County GOP Chairman John Traier.

Stung by the report, Traier is openly gay.

“I want to make a clear and convincing statement,” Bramnick told PolitickerNJ. “I won’t stand for any discrimination. Period. And I’m going to sponsor a fundraiser for him.”

N.J. Assembly Republicans promise aggressive challenge to Democrats in November

Matt Friedman, NJ Advance Media
June 03, 2015

TRENTON — With the primaries over and the general election season upon us, state Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick has a big challenge.

Bramnick (R-Union) wants to be Assembly speaker. That means in November — when all 80 Assembly seats at the top of the ballot — he’ll need to flip at least nine Democratic-held seats to win Republicans a majority in the lower house for the first time since Democrats took over in 2002.

He’ll have to do that in what’s expected to be a low-turnout election in a state with 700,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans. With a legislative district map that was drawn by Democrats, and with a Republican governor who will likely be mounting a GOP presidential primary bid and whose New Jersey approval rating — at least right now — is in the 30s. Not to mention Democrats’ two-to-one fundraising advantage.
But Bramnick says he’s up to the challenge.

“I’m going to be very, very aggressive as to the failures of the Democratic Legislature,” he said. “I’m going need a little help from (the media) pointing out that they’ve been in charge for 13 years. That’s the only request I make.”

Bramnick Officially Kicks Off Campaign for Republican Majority

Bramnick kicks off the morning in Hackensack.With over 150 local supporters this morning, Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick officially launched the Assembly Republicans’ campaign for a majority in next legislature. The day began with a kick-off rally in Bergen County with Bergen GOP Chairman Robert Yudin and Republican Assembly members: David Rible, Scott Rumana, Anthony Bucco, Nancy Munoz, Caroline Casagrande, Jack Ciattarelli, Holly Schepisi, Jay Webber and Robert Auth.

“The people of New Jersey want more jobs and less taxes. Assembly Republicans are the team that can deliver. Assembly Democrats have had over a decade to provide tax relief, but the opposite happened: taxes have gone up,” said Bramnick.


The Republican members then took the kick-off to Hudson County with Hudson GOP Chairman Jose Arango. The Assembly Republicans first visited a number of Hispanic-American owned small businesses in West New York.


New Jerseyans don't have to move, lower taxes are on the way with an Assembly Republican majority. “In West New York we saw great community businesses that serve their close-knit neighborhood well. But we hear from them that things should be easier in New Jersey,” said Bramnick. “Making it easier for local small businesses to thrive is key to a stronger New Jersey.”


The Assembly Republicans ended the day in Jersey City with community leaders and local Republicans.


“We are taking the campaign to every corner of the state. Our message resonates with every voter in New Jersey. Republicans are the party of cutting waste, lowering taxes and creating jobs. That is what the campaign for the Assembly is about,” said Bramnick, concluding the day’s events.

Bramnick said he looks forward to traveling around the state throughout the year bringing the Assembly Republicans message of more jobs and less taxes to the people of New Jersey.
