Sal Anderton, Legislative Director of Porzio Governmental Affairs (PGA) and Of Counsel with Porzio, Bromberg & Newman (Porzio), along with students of his Montclair State University "Under the Dome" political science course, met with New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney to discuss how the Legislature operates and important issues facing New Jerseyans.

"Under the Dome" provides students with a unique experience designed to give them an opportunity to enrich their academic knowledge while learning about the legislative process at the State House in Trenton.  The course is led by Mr. Anderton, who has served as legislative counsel for the New Jersey Department of Labor and a member of New Jersey General Assembly. He has long been an adjunct professor of Law and Political Science at Montclair State University, teaching American Government, introduction to Law and New Jersey State Government.

"It is great to see young people wanting to get involved in public service," said Sweeney.  "Montclair University has always been one of our premiere institutions, and these students represent the future problem solvers of New Jersey and our country.  As we deal with issues such as college affordability, it is important that we get input from the very people who will be impacted by the decisions we make.  I appreciate these future leaders sharing their thoughts with me."
