“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.”

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

“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.”

New Legislation Is Consistent with Latest CDC Guidance, Would Supersede Gov. Murphy’s Executive Orders

Senator Kristin Corrado has introduced legislation that would supersede Governor Phil Murphy’s executive orders and allow vaccinated individuals to unmask indoors, in accordance with new federal guidance.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director of the CDC, announced updated federal guidance on May 13 advising that fully vaccinated people can stop wearing masks in most settings. (The White House/YouTube)

“The CDC has advised that vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks indoors as they are protected from the coronavirus and incapable of transmitting it to others,” said Corrado (R-40). “Since Governor Murphy is being completely irrational and refuses to lift restrictions that are unsupported by science, we’ve introduced a bill to clearly state that vaccinated people cannot be forced to wear a mask indoors.”
