Corrado’s bill (S-4211) would appropriate $4.5 million to support the centers’ missions of preparing young people for life as an adult.

“This program is desperately needed in the disability community,” said Corrado (R-40). “It is time to stop abandoning special needs individuals when they reach age 21 and devote more energy to teaching them how to live productive, responsible adult lives.”

“Each day, members of our law enforcement community put their own lives in jeopardy to respond to dangerous and sometimes life-threatening situations throughout the Garden State,” said Corrado (R-40). “To salute these heroes for their bravery, and the contributions they have made to the well-being of our state, it is only fitting that New Jersey officially recognize January 9 of each year as ‘Law Enforcement Officer Appreciation Day.’”

This bill would help fill a large void in services for those with developmental disabilities.”

The measures are part of a package of preservation bills all funded from constitutionally dedicated corporate business tax (CBT) revenues.

“Protecting undeveloped land in the most densely populated state in the nation is a priority for residents across the state,” said Oroho (R-24). “The voters have expressed their desire to commit some of the business tax revenue to ensure our state remains a desirable place to call home. These bills affirm that the money is invested wisely and delivers the outcomes New Jersey residents expect.”

“The idea to revive New Jersey’s blue license plate was recommended to me by a constituent. It turns out that many New Jerseyans, especially classic car enthusiasts, favor the vintage license plate design that gained popularity in the ‘80s,” said Corrado (R-40). “In fact, if a New Jersey driver were to order a custom license plate today, they would still receive a plate with the standard yellow background. My legislation will actually give drivers the opportunity to purchase something that is truly different and unique.”

“Over the last several months, I have been contacted by constituents who say they have difficulty explaining their physical or developmental disability 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 vehicle registration. This important information will assist law enforcement officials in identifying, and effectively communicating with, individuals with disabilities during vehicle stops.”

Administration Says Unemployment Offices May Not Open Until “Some Point in 2022”

Senator Kristin Corrado expressed her disappointment at Governor Phil Murphy’s failure to meet his self-imposed deadline for reopening all of State government yesterday.

“I’m disappointed but not surprised that Governor Murphy failed to live up to his promise to reopen all of the State government services that have been closed since the start of the pandemic,” said Corrado (R-40). “When everything in the private sector is open, the continuing closure of important State offices, including unemployment centers, sends a message that the Murphy administration doesn’t care that lots of people need help. There’s a clear disconnect between the governor’s priorities and what New Jerseyans actually need.”
