“No hero who has sacrificed for their country should be left without a roof over their head,” said Senator Corrado (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, and Passaic). “Thankfully, we have many incredible non-profit organizations that are building hope and restoring homes for New Jersey’s veterans. With additional grant money, these organizations will be able to purchase and rehabilitate more abandoned properties to provide our veterans with the homes they deserve.”

“How many of our teachers, camp counselors, cafeteria workers, and school employees have histories of child abuse?” Senator Bucco asked. “The scary truth is that under New Jersey’s current laws, we just don’t know. We should learn the answer to that question before something bad happens. We must require all school employees who have regular contact with students to undergo CARI checks.”

“Few New Jerseyans have evaded the wrath of the opioid crisis,” Corrado (R-40) said. “Many of us have a family member, friend, or neighbor who suffers from or has succumbed to addiction, but too often we’re afraid to talk about it.

“Pets are an integral part of the American family, and they shouldn’t be leased like a car or cell phone,” Corrado said. “It’s disturbing that people are being misled into believing they’re purchasing a high-end breed with the promise of affordable monthly payment plans, not realizing they’re actually signing a two or three-year lease that could result in their pet being repossessed. This deceptive practice of renting-to-own puppies employed by shady pet brokers is cruel and must be stopped in New Jersey.”

“The repercussions of texting sexually explicit images for teenagers can be far-reaching,” Corrado said. “Many don’t think about the social trauma, bullying, and heartbreak they could experience if a picture or video falls into the wrong hands, and they often don’t realize they might be creating, possessing, or distributing child pornography with extremely serious legal repercussions. It’s imperative that we teach our kids that ‘sexting’ can ruin their reputations and impact their future.”
