The full Senate unanimously approved Thursday Senator Robert Singer’s bill to require hospitals in New Jersey to notify observation patients of potential out-of-pocket costs.

“When people are hospital observation patients and not considered ‘inpatients,’ their insurance plans may not cover prescriptions,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “Many observation patients suffer from chronic conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, and their unforeseen out-of-pocket hospital expenses can be crippling burdens.”

The full Senate unanimously passed Thursday legislation by Senator Robert Singer to appropriate more than $4 million for grants to certain nonprofits for farmland preservation.

“Farmland preservation remains a necessary initiative in the Garden State to protect a unique facet of our economy and prevent sprawl, which often causes an increase in government and taxes,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “This measure directs to that cause millions of dollars that have been languishing in coffers over the past few years.”

The state Senate passed Thursday Senator Robert Singer’s measure to eliminate a costly and otherwise detrimental state mandate that full-time college students in New Jersey maintain and prove health insurance coverage.

“Rising tuition costs alone prevent too many students from finishing degrees that they have already paid tens of thousands of dollars to obtain,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “We must eliminate this peripheral mandate to facilitate the advancement of New Jersey’s next generation of professionals.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) is a step closer to eliminating the state requirement that every student who is enrolled full-time at a public or private institution of higher education in New Jersey maintain and show proof of health insurance coverage. Senator Singer’s bipartisan bill S-2291 was unanimously passed today by the Senate Higher Education Committee.

“The increasing cost of college has New Jersey students and their families reeling,” Singer said. “Far too many struggle to even finish degrees that they have already paid tens of thousands of dollars to obtain, because tuition and book expenses become unaffordable. Peripheral cost requirements should not hurt their chances of achieving a degree.”

Legislation sponsored by Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean Jr. and Senator Robert Singer to assure that New Jersey families understand student loan rates, schedules, debt and defaults was passed unanimously by the full Senate and heads to Gov. Christie for consideration.

“High school juniors and seniors pursue college with great anticipation and understandable anxiety,” said Kean (R-Union). “Students, parents and guardians are rightly concerned with finding the right schools, visiting campuses and preparing to live on their own. It is just as important for them to fully understand the substantial short- and long-term costs of collegiate investments.”

Senator Robert Singer introduced today three bills to improve response by public utility companies and facilitate power in natural disasters, such as Superstorm Sandy.

“Many of New Jersey’s Sandy victims have cause to be upset about being without power for weeks or several days, and there are others who are lucky their utilities were promptly restored,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “No matter the overall effectiveness of utility responses during and after Superstorm Sandy, we should not fail to adopt initiatives to assure that no one suffered in vain and we are best prepared for future catastrophes.”
