Action Responds To State Auditor’s Report Revealing Security Lapses

Reacting to findings of security lapses that allowed workers hired to care for people with developmental disabilities to evade background checks, the Senate Budget Committee today approved legislation authored by Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Kristin Corrado and Senator Joe Vitale that would strengthen state law by requiring the Department of Human Services to be responsible for the safety checks.

The legislation, S-3554, was crafted in response to an audit that found that some of the caregivers sidestepped the law requiring criminal background checks and that others failed to comply by having the service providers wave the requirements.

“Anyone who is entrusted with caring for our most vulnerable residents should be subjected to the most stringent criminal background checks available. No exceptions,” Senator Corrado said. “We cannot allow one more person to fall through the cracks in the system. We must be a voice for the voiceless. This legislation will ensure the state upholds its responsibility to root out the bad actors, so we can keep people with disabilities safe from harm.”

“Local officials from throughout District 40 have begun to contact me to express concern regarding NJT’s infrastructure at stations within their municipalities,” Corrado said in the letter. “Some relayed concerns about passenger safety, including the need for repairs to platforms that they believed to be unsafe. There was a general sense that their previous attempts to bring attention to and remedy those concerns directly with NJT have gone unanswered.”

Corrado requested information from Santoro on the process through which NJT reviews and responds to outreach from local officials.
