Following last weekend’s catastrophic rainfall in Northern New Jersey and at the Jersey Shore, Senator Kristin Corrado (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic) is urging New Jersey’s United States Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker to fight for FEMA funding to help flood-ravaged communities cope with the aftermath of the storm.

“The State of Emergency Governor Murphy declared this week was a start, but it is becoming abundantly clear to us that we are not going to be able to rebuild our communities without FEMA aid,” Senator Corrado said. “The flood damage we have seen in Little Falls, Cedar Grove, Woodland Park, Brick, and several other towns is astounding. It is time for our counterparts in Washington to step up to the plate and fight for additional funding. Scores of families have been displaced from their homes. Community centers have been destroyed. How much more proof do our elected leaders need before they take action?”

Torres/NJ Governor’s Office)

After joining the District 40 legislators on a tour of flood-ravaged areas in Little Falls yesterday, Governor Murphy today declared a State of Emergency, so that storm-impacted communities can secure State funds to cope with the damage of last weekend’s catastrophic rain storms.

“Disaster relief is not a partisan issue. We have to reach across the aisle and work together to help every family who was hit hard by this storm. The devastation we have seen in our neighborhoods is heart-wrenching, to say the least. There are people here who have lost everything,” Senator Corrado (R-40) said. “I am so grateful to Governor Murphy for taking immediate action to ensure our communities have the resources they need to rebuild and recover.”

“The repercussions of texting sexually explicit images for teenagers can be far-reaching,” Corrado (R-40) said. “Many don’t think about the social trauma, bullying, and heartbreak they could experience if a picture or video falls into the wrong hands, and they often don’t realize they might be creating, possessing, or distributing child pornography with extremely serious legal repercussions. It’s imperative that we teach our kids that ‘sexting’ can ruin their reputations and impact their future.”

The legislation (S-396) forbids members of the council from voting on investments that present a financial or familial conflict of interest. The bill was pushed forward by the senators in the wake of several pension scandals in New Jersey.

“This legislation is a critical step forward in our longstanding efforts to bring transparency and accountability to the way the government invests taxpayer dollars,” Senator Pennacchio (R-26) said. “I am glad to see Governor Murphy take action on our bill. There have been far too many violations of public trust on the State Investment Council in recent years. Anyone who handles public money must be held accountable.”

“We pray and hope our schools are safe from predators,” Senator Bucco stated. “However, under New Jersey’s current laws, we just don’t know. It is time to protect our students and require additional background checks for all school staff members. This common-sense approach will help us stop predators from having access to our students.”

“No hero who has sacrificed for their country should be left without a roof over their head,” said Senator Corrado (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, and Passaic). “Thankfully, we have many incredible non-profit organizations that are building hope and restoring homes for New Jersey’s veterans. With additional grant money, these organizations will be able to purchase and rehabilitate more abandoned properties to provide our veterans with the homes they deserve.”

“How many of our teachers, camp counselors, cafeteria workers, and school employees have histories of child abuse?” Senator Bucco asked. “The scary truth is that under New Jersey’s current laws, we just don’t know. We should learn the answer to that question before something bad happens. We must require all school employees who have regular contact with students to undergo CARI checks.”
