“Over the last several months, I have been contacted by constituents who are hearing impaired that say they have difficulty explaining their condition to law enforcement during vehicle traffic stops,” said Corrado (R-40). “This legislation will help alleviate that issue by allowing people who are deaf or have significant hearing loss to have that designation printed onto a windshield placard. This important information will assist law enforcement officials in identifying, and effectively communicating with, individuals who are hearing impaired during vehicle stops.”

“Toxic shock syndrome is a serious, potentially fatal, infection that can spread rapidly. This legislation was inspired by one of my residents, Madalyn Massabni, who we lost far too young due to mTSS. The bill will raise awareness for this rarely talked about, but nonetheless, serious condition by incorporating basic knowledge of mTSS into our school curriculum,” said Senator O’Scanlon (R-13). “By doing this, students can learn about ways to prevent toxic shock and how to spot the signs and symptoms if the infection has already started.”

“If an individual in New Jersey would like to purchase a used car from a private party, that individual should be afforded the same benefits he or she would receive from a dealer if they were buying a new car,” said Corrado (R-40). “Currently, New Jersey’s e-titling system does not include used vehicle sales documents or private motor vehicle sales documents. My legislation would make the used car buying process far more efficient and enjoyable by requiring the MVC to incorporate used vehicle sales documents into an electronic transaction system.”

Corrado Calls on Murphy to Immediately Lift COVID-19 Testing Mandate for Teachers & School Employees After CDC Changes Recommendations

Please Share:

Senator Kristin Corrado called on Governor Murphy to immediately lift his COVID-testing mandate for unvaccinated teachers and school employees after the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today that testing healthy students and employees is no longer recommended.

“It’s been clear for some time that forcing healthy teachers and school employees to submit to burdensome and expensive COVID testing was unnecessary,” said Corrado (R-40). “Now that the CDC has changed its guidance, Governor Murphy has absolutely no excuse to continue dragging his feet on lifting his testing mandate. He should do it today.”

Senator Steven Oroho, Senator Joe Pennacchio and Senator Kristin Corrado today blasted Democrat leadership in Trenton for their response to the price of concert tickets.

“The priorities in Trenton are off the rails,” said Oroho (R-24). “There is more interest in investigating the price of admission to a Bruce Springsteen concert than there has ever been for unraveling the bureaucratic confusion that led to the deaths of almost 10,000 people in nursing homes.”

Corrado’s bill (A-3990/S-2593) extends the statutory service life of school buses by one year, providing relief for school districts and transportation companies scrambling to find replacements.

“The price of new buses and bus parts have skyrocketed since the pandemic and continuing supply chain problems,” said Corrado (R-40). “This bill would provide a respite, allowing safe vehicles to remain in service a little longer and providing time for the supply of new vehicles to catch up with demand.”
