Conversations with close confidants following a sexual assault or employment discrimination should be admissible evidence in civil cases, Assemblywoman Michele Matsikoudis says. On Monday she, along with Senator Kristin Corrado, introduced a joint resolution (SJR-82/AJR-163) urging the N.J. Supreme Court to adopt those rule changes.

Under current court rules, such conversations are inadmissible in civil cases as hearsay, or out-of-court statements made to prove the truth of a claim, and can include oral, written, or even photographed statements.

“Victims often turn to close family or friends after an assault or being discriminated against, because they’re looking for comfort, and are unsure if they will be believed if they report it, or have a job should they file a complaint,” Matsikoudis (R-21) said. “Senator Corrado and I believe a jury should be allowed to hear that witness testify to that conversation as supporting evidence of a victim’s complaint. It’s allowed in criminal trials in New Jersey and should be allowed in civil cases as well.”

“New Jersey’s public health emergency ended more than two months ago on March 4 and yet public schools are still testing teachers, bus drivers, and other K-12 school employees for COVID-19 on a weekly basis,” said Corrado (R-40). “This absurd and unnecessary policy not only imposes restrictions and undue burdens on educators, but it undermines the guidelines of the CDC itself. There is no rational explanation for this policy whatsoever.”

“Three Rs” Plan Legislation Provides Parents More Information, Expands Ability to Opt-Out to All Parts of Curriculum

Senator Kristin Corrado and Senator Anthony M. Bucco have introduced the “Parents Bill of Rights Act” to provide parents substantially more information about what their children will be taught in school and to expand their ability to opt-out of concerning lessons to the entire curriculum.

“The recent controversy over new sex education mandates from Trenton has really opened the eyes of parents to the fact that portions of their children’s curriculum are inappropriate and extreme,” said Senator Corrado (R-40). “Parents are calling us nonstop to say they want to review what their kids are being taught and they want the right to exclude their children from lessons that conflict with their values. They’re absolutely shocked to learn how little power they have when it comes to overseeing their children’s education. Our new bill resets the balance of power in favor of parents where it belongs.”

Corrado and Bucco’s new legislation is part of the “Three Rs” plan proposed by New Jersey Senate Republicans to repeal, replace, and restore to fix New Jersey’s broken curriculum and give back parental rights that have been eroded by Governor Murphy and Democrats in the Legislature.

As Trenton’s assault on parental rights rages on only months before a new, controversial school curriculum standard takes effect, Senator Kristin Corrado is fighting back with the “Parents Bill of Rights Act” she first introduced on Dec. 6, 2021.

“This legislation is even more poignant now that we have learned more about the Administration’s intention to disenfranchise parents from the education process,” said Corrado (R-40). “With this measure, the educational rights of parents are guaranteed, and family values are protected from government intrusion.”

The ban on plastic and paper bags was signed into law on November 4, 2020, after passing both houses.

“Shoppers are the ones who will be left holding the bag,” said Corrado (R-40). “New Jerseyans who now rely on home delivery and curbside pickup for food have no idea how this will impact their food supply, or how much more it will cost them.

“The persistent delays and congestion at MVC facilities are inexcusable, and quite frankly, offensive to all New Jerseyans, especially when many options are available to alleviate these problems,” said Corrado (R-40). “Bizarrely, despite being more than two years into this pandemic, there are still MVC facilities that offer some services but not all. As a result, some New Jerseyans need to drive out of their way to complete certain transactions, such as renewing their license, which imposes an unnecessary burden and cost.”

“These new requirements for the Department of Transportation have the potential to change the lives of people with disabilities who have difficulty navigating our public road and transit infrastructure,” said Corrado (R-40). “My legislation will make sure that anytime new public infrastructure improvements 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 roads and public transit systems in our state.”
