Assemblyman Peters, ‘Time for indoor dining is now,’ citing success of neighbor states

TRENTON- Assemblyman Ryan Peters called on Governor Phil Murphy to immediately open up New Jersey’s indoor dining with capacity restrictions, on Monday.  The 8th District legislator cited a rate of transmission comparison with surrounding states that have all allowed indoor dining without seeing an increase in the Coronavirus rate.

Peters, Stanfield blast Governor, Democratic caucus for new health premium tax proposal

TRENTON - Assemblyman Ryan Peters and Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield sent a strong message to Governor Phil Murphy and the New Jersey’s Democratic caucus over a new tax proposal that could raise average family health insurance premiums by more than $600.


The 8th District legislators oppose the proposal, which would impose a flat, 2.5 percent tax on health insurance premiums in the state in order to raise $300 million in revenue. An average New Jersey family would see its healthcare cost increase by about $613 annually, according to a report by the nonpartisan affordable healthcare think tank, the Kaiser Family Foundation. The assembly will vote on the bill on Thursday.

Stanfield, Peters fight to give break to small businesses on certain credit card fees

TRENTON – As New Jersey enters the fourth month of Gov. Phil Murphy’s state of emergency, many businesses are struggling to stay afloat. While businesses practice proper social distancing, many of their customers are being forced to call in with their credit card information rather than swipe the card in person. Unfortunately, some credit card companies have taken advantage of this and charge merchants more to manually enter credit card transactions as opposed to swipe transactions.

Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield and Assemblyman Ryan Peters want this practice to end immediately and have introduced a bill to eliminate the practice during the state of emergency.


Follow the bills I've sponsored during my time in the assembly.


I'll be meeting with a new local business that is advancing its community in incredible ways. Let's put the spotlight back on our small business neighbors.

Town Tour

One district, 20 towns! I visited each municipality in the 8th District for my Town Tour initiative - where I hit the ground locally, met residents and representatives and got a feel for the needs of each town. 

The Town Tour also provided an opportunity to gain support for my Property Taxpayer Protection Amendment - a bold effort to return millions in municipal aid back to taxpayers, where it should have been going all along. I've asked each town to pass a resolution in support of the amendment that would make New Jersey affordable again.
