“The package of bills we are sponsoring would override Governor Murphy’s executive orders and allow New Jersey’s children to unmask at daycare, summer camp, and school,” said Corrado (R-40). “With infection rates for adults plummeting and little demonstrated risk to children from the virus, we think it’s time to unmask our kids.”

New Legislation Is Consistent with Latest CDC Guidance, Would Supersede Gov. Murphy’s Executive Orders

Senator Kristin Corrado has introduced legislation that would supersede Governor Phil Murphy’s executive orders and allow vaccinated individuals to unmask indoors, in accordance with new federal guidance.

“The CDC has advised that vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks indoors as they are protected from the coronavirus and incapable of transmitting it to others,” said Corrado (R-40). “Since Governor Murphy is being completely irrational and refuses to lift restrictions that are unsupported by science, we’ve introduced a bill to clearly state that vaccinated people cannot be forced to wear a mask indoors.”

“We’ve heard too many excuses from Governor Murphy for his refusal to reopen walk-in unemployment centers that have been closed for more than a year,” said Corrado (R-40). “With new CDC guidance that social distancing is no longer necessary in most indoor settings, there’s absolutely no excuse for the governor not to reopen these important government offices immediately. When every other state around us is reopening, it’s absolutely ridiculous that it’ll take us passing a law to force Governor Murphy to act.”

“For a guy who claimed early on that he’d be guided at every step by science, Governor Murphy seems more driven by politics,” said Sen. Kristin Corrado (R-Bergen). “He is quick to crack down, but when the science tells us otherwise he wants time to think about it.”

Throughout the pandemic, childcare centers across the state have been going out of business at an alarming rate, and Senator Kristin Corrado today warned that even more will close their doors if the Governor and the Department of Children and Families don’t soon release up-to-date guidance for the industry.

“The operators of daycare centers, like so many other businesses, are paralyzed right now, waiting for clear, sensible guidance from the Administration,” said Corrado (R-40). “Companies that parents rely on to care for their precious children are being smothered by outdated, unnecessary protocols mandated by Murphy and the Trenton bureaucracy. If restrictions aren’t lifted soon, we will be facing a childcare crisis in this state.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Kristin Corrado that allows the purchaser of an automobile by private sale to operate the vehicle for a three-day period without a permanent registration was advanced by the Senate Commerce Committee.

“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,” said Corrado (R-40). “Right now, if a person buys a car from a private seller, there is no legal way for that person to immediately drive the car home. My legislation, which was inspired by a letter from a constituent, will change that by providing the purchaser with a temporary registration. This registration will be issued via email and will make the car buying process far more efficient and enjoyable.”

Senator Kristin Corrado and Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean hosted a virtual “Return to School Roundtable” with parents, students, educators, and experts to discuss returning students to classrooms full time and the various challenges that have resulted from the pandemic.

“I’m glad we could provide a forum for parents, students, and education advocates to have an open discussion with their lawmakers about the importance of returning to school in a manner that is both responsible and safe,” said Corrado (R-40). “There was broad consensus that many students are missing out on a variety of important interactions and support systems both inside and outside of their classrooms resulting in learning loss and physical and emotional harm. It’s imperative that we get kids back into the classroom full time as soon as possible.”

“There was a clear and uniform sentiment expressed by our panelists that the potential risks to students of COVID-19 in a school setting is less than the real harm that is impacting students due to learning loss and social isolation with continued hybrid and remote learning,” said Kean (R-21). “We also heard repeated concerns that districts have struggled with differing county and local health department requirements leading to a wild inconsistency in school closures and pandemic response measures. It’s clear that we need to open up our schools fully and trust that our administrators know how to keep their students and teachers safe.”
