The resolution is dedicated in memory of Benjamin Landel, a Ramapo High School soccer and track star who succumbed after a nine-month battle with this cancer.

“Benjamin was a courageous young man from my district, and the way he lived before and after his diagnosis was an inspiration to many,” said Corrado (R-40). “Even as he fought this rare, aggressive cancer, he inspired other patients with his selflessness and outgoing personality. Through this law, his spirit will continue to support young people dealing with pediatric cancer and their families.”

“I want to send a loud and clear message that sexual harassment will not be tolerated,” said Corrado (R-40). “News reports, and testimony we have heard in Trenton indicate sexual misconduct is more prevalent than we could have imagined. That has to end. The Legislature will lead by example with a no-nonsense policy that clearly provides protections from harassment and assault.”

“New Jerseyans have long supported open space and farmland preservation,” said Bateman (R-16). “In the most densely populated state in the nation, the public understands the need to protect undeveloped parcels and expanses of green fields. They have made their voices known at the polls where they have overwhelmingly favored the responsible acquisition of lands to sustain our State identity as the Garden State.”

“The severity of the state’s heart-breaking drug epidemic demands action,” said Kean (R-24). “This program will save lives by providing first responders with insight into where fentanyl is most rampant and which neighborhoods and towns face the greatest threat. The testing could help police track the sources of the deadly drugs and get them off the streets.”

“People are dying on the streets because they are not aware fentanyl is in the drugs they are abusing,” said Corrado (R-40). “Fentanyl is a killer. Fatal opioid overdoses in the State are 50 percent higher than the national average, and the prevalence of fentanyl is largely responsible. The data we learn from this program will help save lives.”

“Firefighter training classes are just as rigorous and challenging as college courses, and I am pleased they will now be recognized as such,” said Corrado (R-40). “Accrediting fire service training creates a pathway to a fire science bachelor’s degree, opening the door to career advancement. Ensuring New Jersey’s four year state colleges will award these credits is a common-sense move to help firefighters climb the career ladder and better protect Garden State residents, their property, and our community at large.”
