“Over the last year and a half, I have been contacted by constituents with communication disabilities that say they have difficulty explaining their condition 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 license. This important information will assist law enforcement officials in identifying, and effectively communicating with, individuals with ASD during vehicle stops.”

“It is inexcusable,” said Corrado (R-40). “Drivers in our communities are being forced to travel 45 minutes to an hour each way to locations outside of their home county to complete some transactions while MVC slow rolls the full reinstatement of services at local agencies.”

“I am extremely pleased that this bill was signed into law. When members of the Armed Forces receive their Permanent Change of Station orders every two or three years, service members and their families are tasked with moving to one of several military installations across the country,” said Corrado (R-40). “When arriving to a new base, military families often question whether or not a new driver’s license must be obtained for the state they are in. Some states, such as Florida and Maryland, allow service members to drive with a valid out-of-state license. Unfortunately, New Jersey did not permit this. This new law will rectify that, and make it much easier for our service members and their spouses to legally drive a vehicle in this state without worrying about excessive government red tape.”

The State Board of Education and Murphy’s Department of Education continue to obscure crucial data about the impact of learning loss connected to New Jersey’s school COVID policies, and Senator Kristin Corrado today called the stall tactics “embarrassing, politically motivated, and an insult to the parents of children who may never fully recover from the educational failings.”

During the State board’s lengthy December meeting on Wednesday, the agenda skirted the troubling academic repercussions, concentrating instead on amending the verbiage and definitions to enhance educational equality and equity.

“Ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft provide a valuable service for millions of Americans, but sexual misconduct reports still number in the thousands, and additional safeguards must be implemented,” said Corrado (R-40). “My legislation will help provide additional protections for passengers, as well as more transparency for the public, so that we can help prevent these crimes from occurring in the future.”
