“Chronic absenteeism is a growing crisis in over 215 school districts in New Jersey,” Corrado (R-40) said. “The consequences are clear – kids who don’t regularly attend school are prone to fall behind their peers, leading to dropping out of high school. Tracking and combating the downward spiral of prolonged absenteeism will ensure kids are in school, providing them with the best tools for a successful future and life.”

“Few New Jerseyans have evaded the wrath of the opioid crisis,” Corrado (R-40) said. “Many of us have a family member, friend, or neighbor who suffers from or has succumbed to addiction, but too often we’re afraid to talk about it. Raising awareness of the scope of the opioid problem and promoting recovery can help end the stigma and save lives.”

“Pets are an integral part of the American family, and they shouldn’t be leased like a car or cell phone,” Corrado said. “It’s disturbing that people are being misled into believing they’re purchasing a high-end breed with the promise of affordable monthly payment plans, not realizing they’re actually signing a two or three-year lease that could result in their pet being repossessed. This deceptive practice of renting-to-own puppies employed by shady pet brokers is cruel and must be stopped in New Jersey.”

“The repercussions of texting sexually explicit images for teenagers can be far-reaching,” Corrado said. “Many don’t think about the social trauma, bullying, and heartbreak they could experience if a picture or video falls into the wrong hands, and they often don’t realize they might be creating, possessing, or distributing child pornography with extremely serious legal repercussions. It’s imperative that we teach our kids that ‘sexting’ can ruin their reputations and impact their future.”

The designation of May as ‘Small Business Month’ will help us to recognize that hard work and highlight the enormous role that small businesses play in growing our state and local economies.”

“I am honored to stand with women across New Jersey in the fight for equal pay for equal work,” Corrado said. “While we have made significant strides, there is still much more we can do. A person’s gender should not be a determining factor in their salary. That’s just common sense – and it’s something we should all agree on. Let’s continue to work together on a bipartisan basis to ensure pay discrimination becomes a thing of the past.”
