Our sincere condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver.

As an Assemblywoman, Lt. Gov. Oliver co-sponsored the law to prohibit smoking in indoor places, including restaurants and bars which has saved countless lives over the past 17 years and improved the health of those who work in the hospitality industry.

She made history as the second Black woman to lead a Legislative chamber in the U.S. and an inspiration to women and girls throughout the Garden State and beyond. Her memory and legacy will live on.
