“We’ve all seen the tragic news stories of unprepared parents abandoning their newborn in dangerous and sometimes deadly manners,” said Corrado (R-40). “New Jersey has laws in place that allow the safe, legal, and anonymous drop-off of infants at hospital emergency rooms, police, fire, or EMS stations staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The more people we can make aware of this life-saving program, the more babies will be rescued.”

Bill Exempts $225 Weekly Combat Zone Stipends from the State Income Tax

“Brave young men and women like Vineland’s own Sgt. Dominick Pilla willingly leave the safety of their homes and the company of loved ones to defend our freedoms,” said Testa (R-1). “When they are assigned to combat zones, with added tension and risk, they receive weekly ‘combat pay’ stipends of an additional $225 in military compensation. For soldiers who reside in state, New Jersey wants a piece of that hazard bonus. It is time to end this despicable money grab by a state that is infamous for high taxes and over-spending.”

Senator Anthony M. Bucco and Senator Kristin Corrado said computer network outages at New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission agencies this morning have only added to the suffering of drivers who continue to wait on hours-long lines for basic services.

“My phones lit up again this morning with calls from frustrated constituents demanding an explanation for this latest mishap at the MVC,” said Bucco (R-25). “On the most basic level, the good people of New Jersey deserve adequate and functional government, not the preventable chaos that’s happened daily at MVC agencies since they reopened in July. Today’s computer outages are another sign that the MVC isn’t doing enough to improve service.”

“I join our nation in mourning the passing of Justice Ginsburg. She was an independent voice on our nation’s highest court and a champion of women’s rights. She battled to open doors for women, fought to ensure true equality for all, and earned a deep respect that transcended politics or ideologies. Her passing is truly America’s loss.”

Senator Kristin Corrado penned multiple 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.

“I have heard from many constituents who are justifiably concerned about the numerous cases of voter fraud, ballot tampering, incorrect counting, human error, and postal issues earlier this year,” said Corrado (R-40). “A common saying goes, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results.’ We need to ensure the accuracy and fairness of the many crucial local, county, state, and federal elections so the rightful winners may best represent the citizens of New Jersey.”

Corrado: Murphy’s Budget Ignores Reality

Senator Kristin Corrado released the following statement in response to the revised Fiscal Year 2021 budget proposed today by Governor Murphy:

Senator Corrado said New Jersey’s governor needs to tighten his belt like residents and business have done, but Murphy’s budget proposal is increasing spending, taxing, and borrowing. (Pixabay)

“The budget announced today is proof Governor Murphy is taking New Jersey in the wrong direction.

“Main Street restaurants and small businesses across the state remain closed by order of the Governor while competitors across the state lines are open for business, serving New Jersey customers and sucking money out of our state.

Corrado Denounces Vote-By-Mail Decision for November Election

Senator Kristin Corrado reacted to Governor Murphy’s announcement that the general election in November will be done by mail, calling it an unnecessary over-reaction and an affront to hard-earned voting guarantees.

“In his briefing today, Murphy said ‘you can walk into the polling site and give your ballot to a board worker’ but you can’t cast your vote in the machine as usual. That makes absolutely no sense,” said Corrado. “If New Jersey residents can stand in long lines at Motor Vehicles, we should be able to wait six-feet apart at the polls in November. The reality is most people don’t have to stand around too long waiting to vote. Many are in and out of polling centers in a matter of minutes.

“Dr. Fauci has said there is no reason people can’t vote in person as long as they wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines,” Corrado continued.

Following a joint meeting of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee and the Assembly Aging and Senior Services Committee to discuss a package of bills related to care in the state’s long-term care facilities, Senator Kristin Corrado voiced concern about the continuing risks to vulnerable residents during the ongoing pandemic.

“The Health Committee’s action today is a first step that will help us to begin to address the needs of LTC facility residents, but it’s clear we don’t have all of the tools at our disposal to fully investigate the tragic loss of life that has occurred or to ensure that the administration’s policy failures have been remedied,” said Corrado (R-40). “To fully understand the decisions that led to the disaster within the walls of the state’s nursing homes and to develop all of the necessary reforms demands a special investigative committee with subpoena power.

Call for Democrats to Stop Delaying Formation of Special Investigative Committee

Senator Anthony M. Bucco, Senator Kristin Corrado, and Senator Joe Pennacchio said the Murphy Administration’s massive failures in protecting nursing homes, processing unemployment claims, and reopening Motor Vehicle Commission agencies must be investigated by the Legislature to ensure that fixes can be implemented as quickly as possible.

“It’s clear to everyone in New Jersey that the Murphy Administration has failed to properly protect nursing home residents, help unemployed workers, or plan for the MVC’s reopening,” said Bucco (R-25). “What’s not clear, however, is why the governor didn’t listen to the warnings raised by so many people or why he continues to refuse to enact the common-sense solutions we’ve proposed. It’s also not clear why Senate Democrats continue to delay the bipartisan investigation we were promised to help guide our efforts to fix lingering problems and prevent a recurrence of these critical failures.”

By Opening Career Doors, Legislation Seeks to Improve Public Safety & Reduce Taxpayer Costs

“We should support the efforts of those who have demonstrated their desire to get their lives on track and become contributing members of society,” said Corrado (R-40). “If we provide more opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals to learn valuable skills and find stable financial footing upon their releases, we increase the likelihood that they won’t return to crime or to jail. That’s good for public safety and great for taxpayers.”
