Legislation prime-sponsored by Senator Christopher Connors and co-sponsored by Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove entitled the “Combat to College Act,” which would grant priority course registration to military service members and veterans attending public institutions of higher education, was signed into law by Governor Phil Murphy.

“No one is more deserving of special consideration in college course registration than our veterans in view of their sacrifices as well as the scheduling complications that can, sometimes, arise due to their military service obligations. Veterans deserve to be moved to the front of the line.

“It should be noted that many colleges and universities already provide veterans with priority course registration.  However, our Delegation felt it important and necessary to codify this higher education-related process into law for the purpose of consistency for veterans living in New Jersey and attending public institutions.

“We are proud to say that the ‘Combat to College Act’ is one of a number of bipartisan legislative initiatives that have been advanced to improve the quality of lives of veterans who are deserving of our eternal gratitude.”

Members of the 9th District delegation serve on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veterans Affairs committees to more effectively represent their constituency, a large segment of which is comprised of veterans and their families.
