“The persistent delays and congestion at MVC facilities are inexcusable, and quite frankly, offensive to all New Jerseyans, especially when many options are available to alleviate these problems,” said Corrado (R-40). “Bizarrely, despite being more than two years into this pandemic, there are still MVC facilities that offer some services but not all. As a result, some New Jerseyans need to drive out of their way to complete certain transactions, such as renewing their license, which imposes an unnecessary burden and cost.”

“These new requirements for the Department of Transportation have the potential to change the lives of people with disabilities who have difficulty navigating our public road and transit infrastructure,” said Corrado (R-40). “My legislation will make sure that anytime new public infrastructure improvements are proposed, we will put the mobility needs of disabled New Jerseyans front and center. All New Jersey residents, especially those with disabilities, should feel safe and confident when using the roads and public transit systems in our state.”

“Every attempt to work with the Department of Labor to help desperate people access their unemployment benefits has been a total nightmare. They don’t answer calls, they don’t respond to emails, and they don’t provide any helpful information.

“The horrible masks are off, the daily COVID numbers have calmed, and people are relieved that at last, we’re getting back to normal,” said Senator Corrado (R-40). “But for thousands of students who saw their school lives and educations twisted, torn and battered by the pandemic, they continue to struggle in silence and secrecy.”

“Over the last several months, I have been contacted by constituents with autism spectrum disorder that say they have difficulty explaining their condition to law enforcement during vehicle traffic stops,” said Corrado (R-40). “This legislation will help alleviate that issue by allowing people with special needs to have that designation printed directly onto their license. This important information will assist law enforcement officials in identifying, and effectively communicating with, individuals with autism or ASD during vehicle stops.”

“These new requirements for our transportation agencies have the potential to change the lives of people with disabilities who have difficulty navigating our current public road and transit infrastructure,” said Corrado (R-40). “My legislation will make sure that anytime new public infrastructure projects are proposed, or modifications to existing ones are considered, we will put the mobility needs of disabled New Jerseyans front and center.

While thousands of New Jersey residents remain caught up in unemployment limbo, unable to get help from the Department of Labor, federal employees are back at their desks full time. Senator Kristin Corrado called the dysfunction at the state agency inexcusable.

In his State of the Union speech this week, the President boasted that COVID is under control: “We can end the shutdown of schools and businesses. We have the tools we need. It’s time for America to get back to work and fill our great downtowns again with people. People working from home can feel safe and begin to return to their offices. We’re doing that here in the federal government. The vast majority of federal workers will once again work in person.”

“The continued delays and congestion at MVC facilities are inexcusable, and it is obvious the commission still needs some guidance from the Legislature on how to return to pre-pandemic operations,” said Corrado (R-40). “We are more than two years into this pandemic and there are still some MVC employees that are working from home and facilities that offer some services but not all. As a result, many New Jerseyans need to drive out of their way to complete certain transactions, which imposes an unnecessary burden and cost. My legislation will return all MVC facilities to pre-pandemic status so that the people of this state can get the help they deserve in a timely manner.”

Corrado to Introduce Legislation Allowing Kids with Special Needs to Unmask in School

Senator Kristin M. Corrado will introduce a pair of bills that will ensure students in speech therapy, as well as students with intellectual and developmental disabilities, are not mandated to wear masks. These exemptions would apply to students in school districts that continue to mandate students wear masks in school after March 7th.

The first Corrado bill would allow students to unmask during speech-language therapy.

“It is unnecessary and insensitive to demand that young kids with speech disorders wear a face covering when they are participating in speech therapy,” said Corrado (R-40). “A child in speech therapy needs to look at their instructor’s eyes, mouth, and facial expressions to learn how to form the correct speech sounds needed to communicate with others. Requiring kids and speech therapists to mask up significantly hinders development and could delay progress for years.”
