“Less than half of all high school students feel prepared to go to college or start a career after graduation,” Senator Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said. “The High School to College Readiness Commission will give both parents and students the information they need to skyrocket to the top of every classroom and professional environment.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth) has introduced new legislation to allow law enforcement officials to access New Jersey’s Prescription Monitoring Program (NJPMP) without first obtaining a court order or a subpoena. Singer drafted the bill in conjunction with the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.

“Physicians and pharmacists use the NJPMP on a daily basis to stop doctor-shopping and immediately connect people who are suffering with the treatment they need,” Senator Singer said. “Police officers who are tackling the opioid epidemic share those goals, but they don’t have the same, instant access to this lifesaving information. That has to change.”

“In light of the critical role intelligence plays in fighting the opioid epidemic, this bill loosens the restrictions for the collection and analysis of valuable information in the State’s PMP database.  Moreover, it provides law enforcement agencies with access consistent to that of other state regulatory agencies,” Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni explained. “The bill helps in identifying both users and medical professionals who may be abusing the current prescription system earlier on, perhaps before such abuse results in more fatal overdoses.”

“In recent months we’ve seen numerous threats of violence against Jewish Community Centers throughout the country,” Senator Singer said (R-Monmouth and Ocean). “We must do more to keep anti-Semitism from taking root in our country and the rest of the world. We cannot continue to effectively track the rise in anti-Semitism, or deter people from committing these vile acts, without reappointing a Special Envoy. I hope that the administration will heed our call and fill this vacancy as soon as possible.”

S-2567 would establish the 18-member “High School to College Readiness Commission,” which would be charged with developing recommendations to enhance preparation for post-secondary education; and raise awareness among parents and students on admission requirements and other related issues.

Less than half of all high school students feel prepared to go to college or start a career after graduation. Clearly, we can do more to help these young people gain the confidence, tools, and the knowledge to succeed once they enter the real world.” Senator Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said.

“The High School to College Readiness Commission will give both parents and students the information they need to skyrocket to the top of every classroom and professional environment. I look forward to seeing it signed into law and reviewing their findings in the year that follows,” Singer, a longtime member of the Senate Higher Education Committee, added.

“Skin cancer is almost always curable if it is recognized and treated early, but without early detection, it can easily turn fatal,” Senator Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said. “The Jersey Shore attracted 98 million visitors in 2016 and many more will soon arrive. Raising awareness at the beginning of the season will ensure these families have the tools to prevent skin cancer before they even step foot on the beach.”

“Sadly, we have already seen too many examples of how a routine traffic stop can turn into a deadly encounter in a matter of minutes,” Senator Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said. “It is critical for us to hold law enforcement officers accountable for safely interacting with the public, but there are simple steps that drivers can also take to prevent a police stop from escalating into a dangerous situation.”

The New Jersey Senate has passed two bills sponsored by Senator Robert Singer to support incoming New Jersey college students.

The first bill, S-991, would replace the NJ STARS and NJ STARS II State-funded scholarship programs with the New Jersey Scholarship Honors Program. Currently, NJ STARS II scholarships are only available to students who graduate from a county college with at least a 3.25 GPA. The new program created by S-991 would extend the scholarship award to high school students who graduate in the top 10 percent of their class who wish to attend a four-year in-state college. The bill was amended to include students who attend private colleges. Eligible students would receive an award of $4,000 per year.

“Our goal with this legislation is to encourage New Jersey’s best and brightest to pursue a high-quality college education,” Senator Singer Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said. “A high school student who graduates in the top 10 percent of their class has demonstrated that they can succeed at any college of their choice – public or private; four-year or two-year. They should be able to take advantage of that hard-earned opportunity.”
