“This is a Band-Aid, a token reaction to a distressingly long string of atrocities at the prison,” said Corrado (R-40). “Dozens of helpless female inmates were assaulted, more than 30 guards and employees were suspended, the feds are investigating, and the best the DOC can come up with are some body cameras. The Corrections Commissioner dropped the ball and he must be held accountable.

“Congregate day programs provide vital services to thousands of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said Corrado (R-40). “I hear from families every day about the value of these community-based programs, and how they allow so many adults to live their lives as independently as possible. By preventing these facilities from reopening, the Governor is effectively impeding the developmental progress of thousands of disabled New Jerseyans.”

As thousands of New Jersey residents are being vaccinated every day, Senator Kristin Corrado said the state’s plan is failing some vulnerable individuals.

“Homebound seniors and developmentally disabled residents feel abandoned,” said Corrado (R-40). “They wonder when, if ever, they will have the opportunity to get the vaccine. We are getting calls at our office constantly from family members concerned that they loved ones will fall through the cracks in the rush to inoculate as many New Jersey residents as quickly as possible.”

“I am pleased that this legislation was signed today. All veterans and their families deserve to be laid to rest with dignity,” said Singer (R-30). “Knowing that there are unclaimed remains of deceased veterans, their spouses, and their dependents sitting in funeral homes or being buried without honor is heartbreaking. This legislation would ensure the remains of veterans’ loved ones can be claimed by a qualifying veterans’ organization, so they can receive the proper burial they deserve.”

“I’m glad to hear Governor Murphy is following the lead of other states in raising indoor gathering limits, but it doesn’t make sense that some will be limited to 25 people while others will be at 50% of capacity,” said Corrado (R-40). “If larger indoor gatherings are safe for anyone, Governor Murphy should raise the limits to the same levels for everyone across the board.”

“The Murphy Administration’s abysmal COVID-19 vaccine rollout is now putting prisoners ahead of cancer patients,” said Corrado (R-40). “First, in December, the administration missed a federal deadline that delayed the beginning of vaccinations in our nursing homes. Then, in January, we learned that the vaccine was being offered to all New Jersey state prisoners ahead of long-term care residents. And now, in February, we are finding out that many cancer patients have been unable to receive the vaccine, particularly at Memorial Sloan Kettering—the most prominent cancer treatment center in the United States.”
