“We’ve all read the tragic news stories of unprepared parents abandoning their newborn in dangerous and sometimes deadly manners,” said Corrado (R-40). “New Jersey has laws in place that allow the safe, legal, and anonymous drop-off of infants at hospital emergency rooms, police, fire, or EMS stations staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The more people we can make aware of this life-saving program, the more babies will be rescued.”

Senator Kristin M. Corrado and Senator Steven Oroho blasted the Murphy Administration for deliberately and deceitfully turning the School Development Authority (SDA) into an unabashed patronage pit.

A report published by the New Jersey State Commission of Investigation confirmed that top officials in Gov. Murphy’s inner circle were well aware of the patronage hiring spree by disgraced former SDA chief Lizette Delgado-Polanco.

“This investigation confirms what we have known for two years – the Murphy administration encouraged, approved, and then vehemently denied blatant nepotism and cronyism,” said Corrado (R-40). “Firing highly qualified government employees and hiring family and friends who lack sufficient skills is the epitome of abuse of power and personal greed. The Murphy administration must be held fully accountable for their aversion to the truth.”

“The truth that has finally come to light through the SCI report confirms our worst suspicions of improper and unethical wrongdoings,” said Oroho (R-24). “The hiring practices of the Murphy Administration must be further investigated to put an end to nepotism and political patronage and to help restore the public’s faith in state government.”

“The recent unveiling of yet another vote-by-mail issue gives me pause,” said Corrado (R-40). “More than 6,500 ballots were incorrectly postmarked during New Jersey’s primary election, which nobody can seem to explain. Whether it’s a result of human error or blatant malfeasance, the integrity of our upcoming general election is at stake through concerning situations like this.”

U.S. Soldiers Serving in War Zones Earn an Additional $225 Per Week in Military Pay

Service members deployed to dangerous war zones overseas are no longer subject to State Income Tax for combat zone pay under a new law sponsored by Senator Kristin Corrado and signed today by Governor Murphy.

“The military men and women who put their lives on the line to fight for our freedoms in war zones are under-paid heroes,” said Corrado (R-40). “The military provides a combat zone stipend of $225 per week, and this new law allows our soldiers to hold onto more of it, exempting the bonus from state income tax. As a nation, we ask more than enough from our U.S. military members. Taxing their combat pay is unnecessary and insensitive, and that flawed practice ends today.”

Bill Exempts $225 Weekly Combat Zone Stipends from the State Income Tax

Combat pay earned by military men and women serving in dangerous regions around the globe would no longer be subject to New Jersey gross income tax under legislation sponsored by Senator Michael Testa and Senator Kristin Corrado and advanced today by the Senate.

“Brave young men and women like Vineland’s own Sgt. Dominick Pilla willingly leave the safety of their homes and the company of loved ones to defend our freedoms,” said Testa (R-1). “When they are assigned to combat zones, with added tension and risk, they receive weekly ‘combat pay’ stipends of an additional $225 in military compensation. For soldiers who reside in state, New Jersey wants a piece of that hazard bonus. It is time to end this despicable money grab by a state that is infamous for high taxes and over-spending.”

“My phones lit up again this morning with calls from frustrated constituents demanding an explanation for this latest mishap at the MVC,” said Bucco (R-25). “On the most basic level, the good people of New Jersey deserve adequate and functional government, not the preventable chaos that’s happened daily at MVC agencies since they reopened in July. Today’s computer outages are another sign that the MVC isn’t doing enough to improve service.”

“I join our nation in mourning the passing of Justice Ginsburg. She was an independent voice on our nation’s highest court and a champion of women’s rights.

Senator Kristin Corrado penned multiple letters to New Jersey Secretary of State Tahesha Way to request that the election process be made fully transparent while ensuring both County Clerks and the Board of Elections can deliver fair and accurate election results.

“I have heard from many constituents who are justifiably concerned about the numerous cases of voter fraud, ballot tampering, incorrect counting, human error, and postal issues earlier this year,” said Corrado (R-40). “A common saying goes, ‘The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results.’ We need to ensure the accuracy and fairness of the many crucial local, county, state, and federal elections so the rightful winners may best represent the citizens of New Jersey.”

“The budget announced today is proof Governor Murphy is taking New Jersey in the wrong direction.

“Main Street restaurants and small businesses across the state remain closed by order of the Governor while competitors across the state lines are open for business, serving New Jersey customers and sucking money out of our state.
