“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.”

The Senate Commerce Committee has advanced bipartisan legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to restructure ticket sale and resale laws.

“We are bringing accountability to an expanding realm of event ticket sales, which for too long and in too many cases has taken advantage of consumers by imposing ambiguous fees and creating an unlevel playing field,” Singer said. “This balanced legislation provides overdue consumer protections, introduces transparency into the ticket sale process and facilitates responsible ticket resales in a free market.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer, (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to require hospitals in New Jersey to notify observation patients of potential out-of-pocket costs was advanced today by the Senate Health, Human Services & Senior Citizens Committee.

“Many patients admitted to hospitals for observation are not considered inpatients, so their insurance plans may not cover prescriptions otherwise covered if administered during an inpatient stay,” Singer said. “Often times, patients who suffer unforeseen out-of-pocket expenses after hospital observations suffer from chronic conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.”
