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.”

“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.”

“Although New Jersey residents have been able to sign-up for the Next-of-Kin Registry for several years, registration for the emergency contacts program is only possible via the MVC’s website or by mail—in-person registry is currently not an option,” said Corrado (R-40). “This bill, which will allow residents to add emergency contacts in person at MVC agencies, will improve the effectiveness of the Next-of-Kin Registry and allow law enforcement to more easily reach family members for individuals involved in serious vehicle accidents.”
