“Over the last several months, I have been contacted by constituents who say they have difficulty explaining their physical or developmental disability to law enforcement during vehicle traffic stops,” said Corrado (R-40). “This legislation will help alleviate that issue by allowing people with special needs to have that designation printed directly onto their vehicle registration. This important information will assist law enforcement officials in identifying, and effectively communicating with, individuals with disabilities during vehicle stops.”

Administration Says Unemployment Offices May Not Open Until “Some Point in 2022”

Senator Kristin Corrado expressed her disappointment at Governor Phil Murphy’s failure to meet his self-imposed deadline for reopening all of State government yesterday.

“I’m disappointed but not surprised that Governor Murphy failed to live up to his promise to reopen all of the State government services that have been closed since the start of the pandemic,” said Corrado (R-40). “When everything in the private sector is open, the continuing closure of important State offices, including unemployment centers, sends a message that the Murphy administration doesn’t care that lots of people need help. There’s a clear disconnect between the governor’s priorities and what New Jerseyans actually need.”

“Since September 2020, I have written several letters to New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way to request that the election process be made fully transparent while ensuring both County Clerks and the Board of Elections can deliver fair and accurate election results,” said Corrado (R-40). “I have heard from many constituents who are justifiably concerned about the numerous cases of voter fraud, ballot tampering, incorrect counting, and postal issues over the past year. We need to ensure the accuracy and fairness of the many crucial local, county, state, and federal elections so the rightful winners may represent the people of New Jersey.”

“Important State offices, including unemployment walk-in centers, have been closed for nearly 19 months and completely inaccessible to New Jerseyans,” said Corrado (R-40). “Given the long wait, I hope the rumors aren’t true that some offices may have their reopenings pushed back beyond the date the governor set for his administration to get back to work. It would be yet another failure of leadership if Governor Murphy delayed the full reopening of State government any longer.”

“We’ve heard from seniors in Passaic County who were notified that their Meals on Wheels breakfast deliveries will stop on October 15 because CARES Act funding has run out,” said Corrado (R-40). “These food deliveries have been critically important to low-income, high-risk seniors who have avoided crowded places like grocery stores since the start of the pandemic. We’re calling on Governor Murphy to continue funding these Meals on Wheels services that are set to expire with a tiny portion of the $6 billion in federal relief funds he has yet to spend.”

“In-person voting is a critical part of our democracy and would not be possible without dedicated and committed poll workers,” said Corrado. “Sadly, our vital election workers have not received a consistent wage increase in twenty years. This is inexcusable and has helped contribute to a significant shortage of workers across the state. I am calling on Governor Murphy to address this problem by increasing the pay of all poll workers before the upcoming 2021 election.”
