Senator Robert W. Singer (R- Ocean/Mercer/Burlington/Monmouth) today lauded Governor Christie’s approval of $157 million in funding for local preservation and recreation projects. The funds were appropriated as part of New Jersey’s “Green Acres” program to help municipalities and counties acquire lands for preservation or recreational development.

“Preserving land for public benefit is all the more important when you live in the most densely populated state in America,” said Singer. “Since its inception, Green Acres has been highly successful in helping local government defray the cost of preserving or developing desirable spaces for recreational use. The latest round of funding authorized by law today will help communities in our area maintain the quality of life that residents expect and deserve.”

Singer: “Nazi Comments Reflect Poorly on Opponents of Pension and Benefits Reform”

In response to comments made yesterday by an opponent of legislation reforming the state pension and benefits system for public employees comparing the Governor and Legislative leaders to Nazis, Senator Robert Singer (R- Ocean/Mercer/Burlington/Monmouth) issued the following statement:

“As someone of the Jewish faith who lost family in the Holocaust, I find comments made as part of yesterday’s demonstrations comparing Governor Christie, Senate President Sweeney, and Assembly Speaker Oliver to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis deeply offensive. There is simply no excuse, none, for those comparisons to be made in legitimate political discourse. Yesterday’s comments reflected poorly on both the individual making them as well as the organization he represented.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) that would require all surgical practices to be licensed by the Department of Health and Senior Services was passed by the Senate Health Committee today. Under current law surgical facilities only have to be registered, not licensed, and have less stringent operating requirements. The licensed centers are inspected every two to three years, have more specific staffing requirements and must report to the state medical errors that result in serious injuries.

“Surgical facilities often provide complicated, yet necessary surgical procedures and should have similar safety standards as ambulatory care facilities, ” Singer stated. “We must take the necessary precautions to prevent putting any patient at unnecessary risk.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) issued the flowing statement today after Governor Chris Christie’s State Budget Address:

“Governor Christie is taking aggressive action to correct state spending and straighten out our finances. New Jersey residents cannot afford to support the bloated, oversized government Democrats built over the past eight years with constant tax increases and incessant borrowing.

“People who have something to gain by growing government will be howling the loudest, but middle-class families, seniors and small business owners know that New Jersey has become increasingly too unaffordable for many of our friends and family will welcome the Governor’s message of discipline and restraint.

Second Bill Introduced That Would Strengthen NJ’s Crime Laws

Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) introduced legislation today that would increase the penalty for individuals interfering with the apprehension, prosecution, or conviction of a person following the commission of a crime. This legislation comes on the heels of a bill introduced last week by Senator Singer that would reinstitute the death penalty for individuals who murder a child, kill a police officer in the line of duty or commit a terrorist attack that results in fatalities.

“Anyone who assists an individual after the commission of a crime is just as guilty as the original perpetrator and the punishment received should reflect that fact, ” Singer stated. “Tough enforcement today is crime prevention tomorrow.”

10 Police Officers Killed by Gunfire Already in 2011 Shows Need For Revamped Law

Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) introduced legislation today that would reinstate the death penalty in New Jersey for those who murder a child, kill a police officer in the line of duty or commit a terrorist attack that results in fatalities.

“I do not support the death penalty out of a need for revenge or due to malice in my heart. Neither do the many individuals I have met who have suffered from heinous crimes,” Singer stated. “I support the death penalty because sometimes it is the only way to achieve justice for the victims and families affected by horrible crimes.”
