Corrado’s bill (A-3990/S-2593) extends the statutory service life of school buses by one year, providing relief for school districts and transportation companies scrambling to find replacements.

“The price of new buses and bus parts have skyrocketed since the pandemic and continuing supply chain problems,” said Corrado (R-40). “This bill would provide a respite, allowing safe vehicles to remain in service a little longer and providing time for the supply of new vehicles to catch up with demand.”

“Although New Jersey residents have been able to sign-up for the Next-of-Kin Registry for several years, registration for the emergency contacts program is only possible via the MVC’s website or by mail—in-person registry is currently not an option,” said Corrado (R-40). “This bill, which will allow residents to add emergency contacts in person at MVC agencies, will improve the effectiveness of the Next-of-Kin Registry and allow law enforcement to more easily reach family members for individuals involved in serious vehicle accidents.”

Senator Kristin Corrado said the insanity of a new law enacted by Governor Phil Murphy and Democrat legislators that bars police officers from being near polling sites, including those in schools, is being demonstrated as a number of schools have switched to remote learning for today’s primary elections over security concerns.

“Everyone’s looking to better protect our schools in the wake of Uvalde, but Governor Murphy has actually made it illegal for security officers to be present in the many schools that host polling sites across New Jersey,” said Corrado (R-40). “Our schools in Wayne and a number of other districts decided to switch to remote learning for today’s primary election rather than leave children in schools unprotected while thousands of people are coming and going. It’s beyond ridiculous that schools have to decide whether to stay open with no security presence to comply with Governor Murphy’s ill-conceived law.”

“After the long delay, we have seen meaningful progress. It is a move in the right direction. We commend the efforts of Senate President Scutari, Chairman Stack, and the committee members to break the logjam. We hope that today is only the beginning of a process that will result in filling the dozens of judicial vacancies that still remain. Such an action will allow the judiciary to address the thousands of cases that remain backed up all over the state.”
