“Given the many failures, abuses, and lapses of judgement demonstrated by Prosecutor Camelia Valdes, it’s increasingly clear she should not continue to serve as Passaic County’s top law enforcement official,” said Corrado (R-40). “The longer she serves as Prosecutor, the more damage she will do to people’s faith in our justice system. If she truly cares about the integrity of her office and the reputations of her colleagues in the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, Ms. Valdes would resign immediately.”

The New Jersey Senate advanced legislation today sponsored by Senator Kristin Corrado that would allow service members, along with their spouses, who are not state residents, to legally operate motor vehicles in New Jersey without needing to obtain a state driver’s license.

“When members of the Armed Forces receive their Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders every two or three years, service members and their families are tasked with moving to one of several military installations across the country,” said Corrado (R-40). “When arriving to a new base, military families often question whether or not a new driver’s license must be obtained for the state they are in. Some states, such as Florida and Maryland, allow service members to drive with a valid out-of-state license. Unfortunately, New Jersey does not currently permit this. My legislation will help rectify that, and make it much easier for our service members and their spouses to legally drive a vehicle in this state without worrying about excessive government red tape.”

“New Jersey veterans with disabilities face a complex web of disconnected transportation services when trying to reach Veterans Affairs hospitals,” said Corrado (R-40). “Although New Jersey technically has a state-level program to address this issue, funding cuts mean former service members—especially those with disabilities—face a patchwork of spotty services that can force them to miss medical procedures or leave them waiting hours for a ride to or from a hospital. My legislation will create a task force specifically designed to fix this broken system so disabled veterans can receive the care they rightly deserve.”

“These new requirements for our transportation agencies have the potential to change the lives of people with disabilities who have difficulty navigating our current public transit infrastructure,” said Corrado (R-40). “My legislation will make sure that anytime new public infrastructure projects are proposed we will put the mobility needs of disabled New Jerseyans front and center. All New Jersey residents, especially those with disabilities, should feel safe and confident when using the public transit systems in this state.”

“It’s almost unimaginable that public employees and elected officials in New Jersey can be convicted of serious crimes like accepting bribes, molestation, and child pornography while on the job and still be rewarded with a pension for honorable service,” said Corrado (R-40). “If you violate the public trust and break the law while working for taxpayers, you do not deserve a taxpayer-funded pension. The fact that this loophole hasn’t been closed yet is absolutely shameful.”

“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.”
