“If an individual in New Jersey would like to purchase a used car from a private party, that individual should be afforded the same benefits he or she would receive from a dealer,” said Corrado (R-40). “Right now, if a person buys a car from a private seller, there is no legal way for that person to immediately drive the car home. My legislation, which was inspired by a letter from a constituent, will change that by providing the purchaser with a temporary registration. This registration will be issued via email and will make the car buying process far more efficient and enjoyable.”

“Today’s $46.4 billion budget vote is the epitome of opaque government in Trenton. It’s another example of backroom deals and the public being shut out of the process by the legislative Democratic majority.

“New Jerseyans deserve better. They deserve real transparency.”

Ultimately, providing an affordable financial strategy to upgrade critical infrastructure throughout the state will protect the public health of all New Jerseyans.”

Corrado: Closing Edna Mahan Won’t Address Leadership Failures That Allowed Abuses of Female Inmates to Continue

Senator Kristin Corrado (R-40) responded to Governor Phil Murphy’s announcement that he intends to close the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women:

Sen. Kristin Corrado responded to Gov. Phil Murphy’s announcement that he intends to close the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women after his administration failed to heed federal warnings allowing abuses against female inmates to continue. (SenateNJ.com)

“The abuses and sexual assaults that occurred at Edna Mahan were the result of poor leadership by Governor Murphy and NJDOC Commissioner Hicks and their failure to heed federal warnings or hold abusive staff accountable. It’s unclear how closing the facility at taxpayer expense will remedy the leadership concerns that will persist regardless of where the inmates are located. The building didn’t fail these women, the Murphy administration did.”
