“It is not uncommon for the buyer of a property with solar panels to have trouble finding out how to contact the installer,” said Singer (R-30). “This bill would require the seller to disclose the contact information for the installer of the solar panels, which would make it easier for the buyer to contact the installer as needed in the future. It would also help protect a buyer from unknowingly assuming responsibility for a lease agreement related to solar panels installed on the property.”

“Seniors have always been prime targets for scammers who prey on their trusting nature and easy demeanor,” said Singer (R-30). “We’ve all heard the stories—an elderly person passes away and their entire estate is left to a seemingly random caregiver. In many of these instances, the so-called caregiver took advantage of a person who was clearly in a vulnerable state. My legislation will curb this despicable behavior so that our seniors can feel confident that their estate will go to the proper beneficiaries.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) issued the following statement on recent increases in State health benefit premiums:

The School Employees’ Health Benefits Plan (SEHBP, which covers school employees in more than 300 school districts) and the State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP, which covers employees in more than 500 local governments and authorities) are now in a state of crisis as a result of mismanagement by Murphy Administration officials who control these two plans. Premiums for these plans are skyrocketing this year by up to 22% which means property taxpayers will be paying hundreds of millions of dollars more for benefits. Hundreds of thousands of local government employees and retirees will also pay thousands of dollars more due to premium sharing.

The facts reveal that the current crisis was avoidable had there been prudent, transparent management of these two programs. The magnitude of this problem is so large, that many people have not processed it.

Mayhem in Wildwood is Only the Latest Incident in a Disturbing Trend

“The dreadful activity in Wildwood was completely out of control and totally unacceptable. It was preventable, and it should never have happened, but the Legislature and the Attorney General dropped the ball,” said Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-26), noting that 15 months ago he introduced legislation (S-1206) with Senate colleague Bob Singer targeting pop-up mobs and those who incite them.

“The tragic loss of life in Wildwood this weekend should serve as a wake-up call for anyone who thinks the concerns we raised about pop-up parties over the past year are overblown,” said Singer (R-30). “I hope the Administration will finally act on our request to create a task force of state and local officials who can work together to develop an effective coordinated plan to respond to future events.”

“Our Jewish community in Lakewood and surrounding towns has been targeted with hate crimes, stabbings, and vile anti-Semitic social media posts in recent years,” said Singer (R-Ocean). “Whenever those issues arose, Matt Platkin was a partner in helping us to protect the rights of our community and fight for justice. He did that as chief counsel to the governor, and I have no doubt he’ll continue to do it once he’s confirmed as Attorney General.”
