“Raising awareness is an important step that will help us to battle the crisis of opioid abuse that’s plaguing New Jersey and save lives,” said Corrado (R-40). “We’re ensuring that individual patients who are prescribed opioids are warned of the potential danger of addiction. On a larger scale, we’re going to highlight the vast scope of this disease to reduce the stigma of talking about it or seeking help. These efforts will work in tandem to educate patients and the general public about this growing problem.”

Following her call yesterday for increased training for New Jersey judges on dealing with sexual assault survivors in their courtrooms, Senator Kristin Corrado will introduce legislation that requires the judiciary to develop and implement such a training program. Additionally, the legislation sets minimum standards to ensure the training is thorough, and requires it to be conducted annually.

“We need to ensure that judges and court personnel are better trained about what behavior is appropriate in cases involving allegations of sexual assault,” said Corrado (R-40). “Because whatever training the courts are doing now, it clearly is not working. We still have judges making despicable comments from the bench that may make survivors think twice about pursuing justice.”

Says it’s inconceivable that judges continue to demonstrate an antiquated mentality towards rape

Senator Kristin Corrado said that outrageous comments from a pair of New Jersey judges in recent sexual assault cases make it clear that better training is needed for those who sit on the bench.

“It’s outrageous that we have judges serving today in New Jersey courtrooms who think it’s appropriate to downplay the severity of sexual assault perpetrated against young girls,” said Corrado (R-40). “The focus of those judges on protecting alleged rapists from the consequences of their vile actions is contrary to all of the advances we have made in recent years to help sexual assault survivors pursue the justice they deserve.”

“Superstorm Sandy has had a devastating and lasting impact on the quality of our water pipes, sewer systems, and storm water infrastructure,” Bateman said. “In my area, for example, the funding slated for Somerville Borough and Raritan Township’s Municipal Utilities Authority will keep the water resources in our communities safe, without putting an additional burden on local property taxpayers. Providing an affordable financial strategy to upgrade critical infrastructure statewide will protect the public health of New Jerseyans and the overall environment of the Garden State.”

“Our pets are an integral part of the American family,” said Corrado. “Good people are being deceived into thinking they’re purchasing a high-end breed with the promise of affordable monthly payment plans, not realizing they’re actually signing a two or three-year lease that could result in their pet being repossessed. This deceptive practice of renting-to-own puppies employed by sinister pet brokers is cruel and must be stopped.”

“All veterans and their families deserve to be laid to rest with dignity,” Singer said. “Knowing that there are unclaimed remains of deceased veterans, their spouses, and their dependents sitting in funeral homes or being buried without honor is heartbreaking. This legislation would ensure the remains of veterans’ loved ones can be claimed by a qualifying veteran’s organization, so they can receive the proper burial they deserve.”
