Gov. Chris Christie signed into law bipartisan tanning legislation sponsored by Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean).

Senator Singer’s prohibits people younger than 14 from spray tanning and those younger than 17 from using tanning beds in tanning facilities. Seventeen-year-olds can use tanning beds only if a parent or guardian is present at the tanning facility for initial consultation.

“In sponsoring and advocating for this law, I have given careful consideration to its potential impact on the business community, but I firmly believe it is my primary responsibility as a Senator to protect children,” Singer said. “There are copious studies proving that tanning can be habit-forming and impose severe, life-threatening health risks upon young children and teenagers.”

The state Senate passed bipartisan tanning legislation sponsored by Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean).

Senator Singer’s S-1172 prohibits minors younger than 14 from spray tanning and those younger than 17 from using tanning beds in tanning facilities. Seventeen-year-olds can use tanning beds only if a parent or guardian is present at the tanning facility for initial consultation.

“Tanning can be habit-forming, and children and young teens are the most-vulnerable to the life-threatening risks of skin cancer,” Singer emphasized. “We hear of serious, sometimes fatal cases of skin cancer in young people in their twenties and thirties who were frequent users of artificial tanning beds as teens.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Bob Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to provide emergency responders with vital health information about injured motorists was passed today by the full Assembly.

The legislation, S-71, would provide interested motorists a yellow sticker to place on their vehicles to notify emergency responders that critical health information is available in the glove compartment.

“In case drivers cannot communicate during an emergency, this measure gives our responders critical health information and a better chance of reviving our motorists in life-threatening circumstances,” Singer said. “Yellow Dot programs are effective, simple initiatives in several states, including Connecticut, New York, Virginia. This is worth our every effort, as you can’t put a price on saving lives.”

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.”

“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.”
