Yes, Corzine has proposed stronger pay-to-play laws that would end pay-to-play at all levels of government.  It was his first proposal in his run for Governor, and it will be a top priority of the Corzine administration.

Here's his plan (PDF):

There have been recent efforts to address the problem in state government contracting, but they have not succeeded because they do not go far enough. The Executive Order that former Governor McGreevey put in place last fall, and that Governor Codey has continued, applies only at the state government level.

Legislation enacted last year that is scheduled to take effect in 2006 applies to local government, but it allows too many opportunities for government and political officials to continue to "play the system." As Governor, Jon Corzine will push for a comprehensive law that includes:

a. Ending pay-to-play at all levels. The Corzine proposal covers county and municipal contributions, in addition to legislative committees.

b. Ending pay-to-play for developers as well as contractors. The new rules would cover developers seeking local government approvals for zoning variances, etc.
