The New Jersey Senate has approved legislation (S-2020) sponsored by Senator James W. Holzapfel (R-10) and Senator Robert Singer (R-30) that authorizes the investment of $8 billion over five years in transportation infrastructure funding pursuant to Governor Christie’s Transportation Capital Program.

“The Governor’s transportation funding plan will allow us to continue critical investments in infrastructure without having to resort to a gas tax increase that people cannot afford,” said Holzapfel. “Unlike his predecessor who nearly bankrupted the Transportation Trust Fund, Governor Christie is working to reduce our reliance on borrowing and will transition transportation funding to a sustainable pay-as-you-go model over the proposed five-year plan.”

Senator Robert Singer, R-Monmouth/Ocean, slammed “The New Jersey Health Benefit Exchange Act,” approved by the Senate today.

“Unlike other states, New Jersey has a 20-year-old system that assures affordable health coverage to individual and small group markets,” Singer said. “Two boards in the state Department of Banking and Insurance already cover the intent of the Exchange Act, for example by certifying products in those markets, controlling rates, publicizing the availability of coverage, mandating guaranteed issue and renewal, as well as providing lesser waiting periods for coverage and longer dependent coverage.”

Legislation sponsored by Senators Bob Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) and Richard J. Codey (D-Essex, Morris) that aims to implement a “Yellow Dot Program” to provide emergency responders with vital health information about motorists at accident scenes was passed today by the full Senate.

“This measure gives our responders critical health information and a better chance of reviving our motorists in life-threatening circumstances, who cannot communicate,” Singer said. “Yellow Dot programs have proven to be an effective, relatively simple initiative in several states, including Connecticut, New York, Virginia. This is worth our every effort, as you can’t put a price on saving lives.”

Paramount legislation by Senator Bob Singer and Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean to increase fines on drivers who illegally pass school buses was unanimously advanced today by the Senate Transportation Committee.

“We’re dealing with one of the most life-threatening driving offenses and the stakes must be raised for those committing such a senseless crime,” said Singer (R-Monmouth and Ocean). “Vulnerable, defenseless children being picked up or dropped off along our roadways can be killed because of such carelessness. It’s more than reasonable to make violators pay double.”
