“I’m glad we could provide a forum for parents, students, and education advocates to have an open discussion with their lawmakers about the importance of returning to school in a manner that is both responsible and safe,” said Corrado (R-40). “There was broad consensus that many students are missing out on a variety of important interactions and support systems both inside and outside of their classrooms resulting in learning loss and physical and emotional harm. It’s imperative that we get kids back into the classroom full time as soon as possible.”

“There was a clear and uniform sentiment expressed by our panelists that the potential risks to students of COVID-19 in a school setting is less than the real harm that is impacting students due to learning loss and social isolation with continued hybrid and remote learning,” said Kean (R-21). “We also heard repeated concerns that districts have struggled with differing county and local health department requirements leading to a wild inconsistency in school closures and pandemic response measures. It’s clear that we need to open up our schools fully and trust that our administrators know how to keep their students and teachers safe.”

“Professional apprenticeships open new doorways for individuals who choose a skills-based career path, including on-the-job training, mentors, and nationally-recognized industry credentials,” said Corrado (R-40). “And just like private employers, State agencies can, and should, take advantage of the benefits of registered apprentices to better recruit and retain State workers. My legislation will help facilitate this by establishing a Registered Apprenticeship Program specifically for State Agencies.”

“With all of the public health metrics pointing in the right direction, there’s no justification for Governor Murphy to keep government offices closed that should be open to serve the public,” said Corrado (R-40). “We continue to hear from hundreds of unemployed workers who can’t resolve their claims online or over the phone to get the benefits they’re owed. It’s unbelievable they still can’t walk into an unemployment center to quickly resolve whatever issues they’re having in a face-to-face conversation. Governor Murphy needs to reopen those walk-in centers and other public-facing offices immediately.”

In a letter earlier this week to MVC Chief Sue Fulton, Corrado asked how the automatic voter registration system operated by the commission would prevent the hundreds of thousands of undocumented residents who will be eligible to apply for New Jersey driver’s licenses starting May 1 from being registered to vote illegally.

With additional concerns stemming from the MVC’s response, Corrado followed up today with a letter (click here for PDF) to Secretary of State Tahesha Way.

Allegations that the Murphy Administration fired a state employee after he reported another worker for sexually harassing a colleague, disclosed by a major newspaper today, indicates not much has changed as far as how the Governor’s inner circle regards women, Senator Kristin Corrado said.

“I am appalled by what appears to be another inexcusable and indefensible error on the part of the Governor,” said Corrado (R-40). “This is not okay. We have spent months on hearings and passing legislation to protect harassment and abuse survivors, as well as those who speak out on behalf of survivors. Murphy even signed these bills into law recently.

Claimants Are Finding it Impossible to Prove Their Identities Online

Frustrated by the growing number of residents who are having their unemployment benefits blocked, Senator Kristin Corrado and Senator Loretta Weinberg today called on the Department of Labor and the Murphy administration to open unemployment offices for in-person sessions so unemployed workers can have their claims settled.

“Parents want to celebrate their children’s graduations without the gathering restrictions that don’t apply to other types of ceremonies and public events,” said Corrado (R-40). “We know outdoor events with social distancing and masks pose little risk, especially when you factor in our progress with vaccinations. At this point, the 200-person limit for outdoor graduation ceremonies is an unnecessary inconvenience that Governor Murphy must address.”
