State of New Jersey
Executive Order #66

Governor Christine Todd Whitman

WHEREAS, Reorganization Plan No. 001-1997 (hereinafter "the Plan") was submitted to the Senate and General Assembly on January 14, 1997; and

WHEREAS, paragraph 1 of the Plan establishes within the Department of the Treasury a Division of Revenue; and

WHEREAS, paragraph 2 of the Plan transfers the Bureau of Revenue of the Division of Financial Management and General Services in the Department of Environmental Protection to the Division of Revenue; and

WHEREAS, paragraph 3 of the Plan transfers the Cash Control and Revenue Processing Units of the Bureau of Revenue Administration of the Division of Accounting and Auditing in the Department of Transportation to the Division of Revenue; and

WHEREAS, paragraph 4 of the Plan transfers the Compliance Activity within the Division of Taxation in the Department of the Treasury to the Division of Revenue; and

WHEREAS, the Plan shall become effective in 60 days on March 15, 1997, unless disapproved by each House of the Legislature by the passage of a Concurrent Resolution stating in substance that the Legislature does not favor this Plan, or at a date later than March 15, 1997, should the Governor establish such a later date for the effective date of the Plan, or any part thereof, by Executive Order; and

WHEREAS, the administrative burden on the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Environmental Protection in implementing paragraph 2 of the Plan and on the Department of the Treasury and the Department of Transportation in implementing paragraph 3 of the Plan will be greatly diminished by delaying the effective date of paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Plan until August 1, 1997; and

WHEREAS, I conclude that an effective date later than March 15, 1997, for paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Plan is necessary for the orderly and effective implementation of paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Plan; and

WHEREAS, the administrative burden on the Division of Taxation in the Department of the Treasury will be greatly diminished by delaying the effective date of a portion of paragraph 4 of the Plan so that only the Telecollection Function of the Office Collections Branch within the Compliance Activity in the Division of Taxation is transferred when the Plan becomes effective on March 15, 1997, unless disapproved by each House of the Legislature as noted above; and

WHEREAS, I conclude that an effective date later than March 15, 1997, for the portion of paragraph 4 of the Plan concerning the Compliance Activity, other than the Telecollection Function, is necessary for the orderly and effective implementation of paragraph*4 of the Plan; and

WHEREAS, I have directed the Treasurer to prepare a report recommending the time at which the transfer of the balance of the Compliance Activity within the Division of Taxation may take place without creating an administrative burden on the Division of Taxation;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, CHRISTINE TODD WHITMAN, Governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the Statutes of this State, do hereby ORDER and DIRECT:

1. Unless Reorganization Plan No. 001-1997 is disapproved by the Legislature by March 15, 1997, paragraphs 2 and 3 of Reorganization Plan No.*001-1997 shall be effective on August 1, 1997.

2. Unless Reorganization Plan No. 001-1997 is disapproved by the Legislature by March 15, 1997, paragraph 4 of Reorganization Plan No. 001-1997, other than as it applies to the Telecollection Function of the Office Collections Branch within the Compliance Activity in the Division of Taxation, shall be effective on such date as set by Executive Order, following the report and recommendation by the Treasurer as provided herein.

3. This Order shall take effect immediately.

/s/ Christine Todd Whitman
Governor

Attest:

/s/ Michael P. Torpey
Chief Counsel to the Governor
