Senator Robert Singer will introduce legislation expanding legal protections for disabled adults following a reported incident in Manasquan where a developmentally disabled man nearly drowned after being dared to jump from a jetty into the frigid ocean.

According to a report in the Asbury Park Press, the 19-year-old man, who is autistic and diabetic, was egged into jumping from the jetty into the ocean on February 25 by two acquaintances who taped the incident with their cell phone and then later posted the video online. Law enforcement authorities said they couldn’t charge the men criminally because the conduct didn’t fall under any current state statute.

“This is a very troubling incident where a young man with a mental disability was taken advantage of,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “This was not a harmless prank. It was flat out wrong and could have resulted in this young man’s death. This type of abuse of a developmentally disabled person who didn’t know any better simply can’t be tolerated.”

“The people of New Jersey should each decide if this expensive measure is necessary in their own homes. Government should not decide how families spend their personal income or force them to spend thousands of dollars more for things in their homes.

Editorial: Singer on Need to Act on Sandy Reforms to Help Victims Recover, Towns Prepare

The following editorial by Senator Robert Singer on the need to act on legislative reforms to help Sandy victims was published in the Asbury Park Press on March 11, 2015:

Nearly three years after superstorm Sandy, too many disaster victims are still struggling to rebuild and recover. Powerful legislation that could provide aid and protection for Sandy victims has been pushed aside, as we still remember empty storefronts lining flood-ravaged streets and waterlogged homes crumbling on the Jersey Shore.

We cannot continue to allow Sandy victims to struggle, nor can we deny local communities valuable recovery resources and tools they need to prepare for future natural disasters.

Senator Robert Singer announced today he will introduce legislation to streamline and enhance the state’s organ donor registry system to make it easier for residents to sign up as donors and to ensure the state’s registry system is accessible and up-to-date.

Donate Life NJ is a life-saving partnership between Gift of Life Donor Program (southern NJ) and NJ Sharing Network (northern and central NJ). Together these two nonprofits coordinate the organ and tissue transplants for all New Jersey residents. (Donate Life NJ)

“There are 5,000 New Jerseyans waiting on the life-saving gift of an organ donation,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean).  “To save more of those lives it’s critical we do all we can to inform the public and new drivers about the program, make it easier for donors to sign up and make sure the information in the state’s donor registry is as up-to-date and accessible as possible.”

A measure sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to create better coordinated and comprehensive primary and behavioral health care services was advanced by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.

Under Senator Singer’s legislation, S2375, ambulatory care facilities would be permitted to provide primary health care services and behavioral health care services under a single license.

“The state’s current requirement forcing facilities to obtain multiple licenses is an unnecessary burden that restricts a patients’ access to needed care and makes it much more difficult for health centers to provide coordinated, holistic care,” said Singer. “Making it easier for ambulatory care facilities to also provide mental health services will allow more patients to get the full spectrum of care that they need.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer reforming New Jersey’s alimony laws to eliminate lifetime awards and establish guidelines for the amount and duration of awards has been signed into law by Governor Christie.

“These needed reforms will make sure a spouse who has faithfully met their financial obligation isn’t unfairly forced to work through retirement in order to continue making payments, while still making sure a dependent spouse is treated fairly after a divorce,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “The state’s alimony laws were out of touch with today’s society where both partners in a marriage often have careers and unfairly overburdened spouses with crippling lifetime awards. Under these reforms, the courts will no longer be operating with an assumption that either spouse will be dependent on the other for the rest of their lives after a divorce.”
