“There are thousands of New Jersey residents in recovery who struggle with addiction every day,” said Corrado (R-40). “Many of these individuals rely on a 12-step support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, or similar organizations. It is critical that these life-saving support groups be allowed to continue to hold in-person meetings to ensure that these individuals have access to the help and counseling they depend upon.”

“For the governor to place another arbitrary restriction on indoor dining at restaurants and bars, when they are already limited to a mere 25% capacity, is a slap in the face to small businesses struggling to survive—particularly right before the holidays,” said Corrado (R-40). “This irrational decision by Governor Murphy will impact our restaurant industry in the worst possible way.”

“Due to mobility issues, homeless veterans’ access to resources is often limited by their geographic location,” said Corrado (R-40). “When conditions, such as severe weather, require veterans to seek out temporary shelter, too often they find themselves isolated from shelters and other facilities that can best suit their needs. This bill would result in the development of shelters in communities that need them.”

“In the age of COVID, masks are now essential goods, not a luxury product. In typical New Jersey fashion, there’s a tax for this new necessity,” said Corrado (R-40). “My common-sense measure would exempt masks from this regressive tax that disproportionately impacts middle-class and low-income residents.”
