“Toxic shock syndrome is a serious, potentially fatal, infection that can spread rapidly. This legislation was inspired by one of my residents, Madalyn Massabni, who we lost far too young due to mTSS. The bill will raise awareness for this rarely talked about, but nonetheless, serious condition by incorporating basic knowledge of mTSS into our school curriculum,” said Senator O’Scanlon (R-13). “By doing this, students can learn about ways to prevent toxic shock and how to spot the signs and symptoms if the infection has already started.”

“If an individual in New Jersey would like to purchase a used car from a private party, that individual should be afforded the same benefits he or she would receive from a dealer if they were buying a new car,” said Corrado (R-40). “Currently, New Jersey’s e-titling system does not include used vehicle sales documents or private motor vehicle sales documents. My legislation would make the used car buying process far more efficient and enjoyable by requiring the MVC to incorporate used vehicle sales documents into an electronic transaction system.”

“Clean drinking water is a basic need which every New Jerseyan should have access to and that is why I am pleased that this bipartisan bill is moving ahead,” said Testa (R-1). “For far too long, New Jersey’s infrastructure needs have been either ignored or overlooked. This legislation aims to end that legacy of neglect and provide critical funding to public water systems that are in dire need of improvement and repair.”

“The Senior Freeze provides needed property tax relief for older homeowners, including many who are struggling to make ends meet on fixed incomes,” said Stanfield (R-8). “Currently, seniors must wait for the Treasury to send out the checks by mail, which is a costly and inefficient process. My legislation will simplify the Senior Freeze by crediting property tax bills directly so seniors don’t have to wait months and months for a rebate check.”

“The tragic loss of life in Wildwood this weekend should serve as a wake-up call for anyone who thinks the concerns we raised about pop-up parties over the past year are overblown,” said Singer (R-30). “I hope the Administration will finally act on our request to create a task force of state and local officials who can work together to develop an effective coordinated plan to respond to future events.”

“The Murphy administration’s continued inaction in helping towns respond to pop-up parties that have overwhelmed a growing number of Shore communities is disturbing. There aren’t many small towns that can maintain public safety and effectively protect their communities when thousands of rowdy people suddenly show up with little or no warning.

Holzapfel, McGuckin & Catalano: Murphy Delusional to Think He’s “Prepared” to Accept Illegal Immigrants from Other States

Senator Jim Holzapfel, Assemblyman Greg McGuckin, and Assemblyman John Catalano (all R-10) said Governor Murphy is delusional if he thinks New Jersey is “prepared” to accept illegal immigrants that might be transported from other states when his administration has failed to deliver basic government services to New Jersey residents.

The 10th District’s legislators said Gov. Murphy is delusional if he thinks New Jersey is ‘prepared’ to accept illegal immigrants that might be transported from other states when his administration has failed to deliver basic government services to New Jersey residents. (Pixabay)

“Unemployment is still a mess, the MVC remains broken, and good luck getting through on the phone to file for your ANCHOR rebate,” said Holzapfel. “Frankly, the Murphy administration hasn’t even proven itself prepared to serve New Jerseyans. Instead of fixing these broken government services, Governor Murphy has focused on turning New Jersey into an expensive sanctuary state while our families, seniors, and children are left behind.”

“The revelations in the story regarding the Murphy administration’s iron fist over their ludicrous sex education standards for 8 and 9 year olds with threatening local school aid is outrageous and contemptible,” said Testa (R-1). “These threats are another piece of evidence supporting the need for passage of my Parents Bill of Rights introduced earlier this year. It is unconscionable to me that the government should use its financial power, derived from taxpayer dollars, to force local school districts to do something that parents and educators themselves don’t want.”

Pennacchio’s bill, S-772, would support women and minority farmers, and help encourage more of them to consider operating farms in the Garden State.

“I am extremely pleased that the Governor signed this bill into law today. Historically, minority and disadvantaged farmers have been neglected by programs designed to help with loans and other assistance,” said Pennacchio (R-26). “Too many have been unable to capitalize on affordable sources of financing for beginning farmers, emergency loans, and other costly expenses.”

“Children do not have the maturity to make life-changing medical decisions that cannot be reversed,” said Durr (R-3). “We cannot discount the fact that 10-, 11-, and 12-year-old children are extremely impressionable and can be influenced by adults who may push them to make choices they cannot fully comprehend. We can protect children from unnecessary and permanent harm by delaying these important decisions until they are adults.”
