S-463 establishes the “Meals on Wheels in New Jersey Fund” and provides for a designation on the State gross income tax return that will permit taxpayers to make voluntary contributions to the fund.

As our aging population continues to grow, we need to expand opportunities to support organizations like Meals on Wheels.”

Meals on Wheels is a tremendous resource for these folks, but the organization needs much more help,” Senator Singer said. “As our elderly population continues to grow, nonprofits like Meals on Wheels will be instrumental in our outreach efforts to ensure more seniors can stay healthy and happy in their own homes. This is a great way for more people to stand up and show their support.”

Editorial: Why Amazon Didn’t Choose NJ

The following editorial by Senator Robert Singer (R-30) on Amazon’s rejection of New Jersey’s proposal to host a new headquarters was published on Feb. 25, 2019 in the Asbury Park Press:

The following editorial by Sen. Robert Singer on Amazon’s rejection of NJ’s proposal to host a new headquarters was published on Feb. 25, 2019 in the Asbury Park Press. (WikiMedia). 

A whopping 238 cities across the United States sought to be the home of Amazon’s second headquarters, dubbed “HQ2.” Of all city applicants, Newark, New Jersey offered Amazon the largest tax benefits in the country. Regardless of being one of twenty cities to make the final cut, Newark was passed over by Amazon not once, but twice. It speaks volumes that a package of tax incentives totaling $7 billion could not entice Amazon to choose New Jersey.

Our state’s prime geographic location, diverse workforce, state-of-the-art infrastructure, convenient transportation, and best-in-the-nation schools should have made the Garden State an easy sell. The New Jersey Legislature’s successful bipartisan effort to top all other competing tax incentive offers nationwide should have made the Garden State an easy choice. The competition was fierce to court HQ2, and New Jersey was in play.

“What does this award really stand for?” Senator Singer (R-Monmouth and Ocean) opined. “Ensuring your employees are kept healthy, secure, and can get back to work quickly and safely after an injury. It’s a wonderful achievement that puts Monmouth County and New Jersey in the national spotlight.

Legislation to make Pregnancy, Delivery, and the Postpartum Period Safer

A trio of bipartisan bills sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth) that aims to improve the health and well-being of mothers before, during, and after pregnancy unanimously passed the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee. The bills’ passage comes in the wake of a state and national health emergency: African American mothers are dying both during and after childbirth at disproportionately higher rates than white mothers, with some of the most staggering rates occurring right here in New Jersey.

“New Jersey’s high maternal illness and death toll are disturbing, particularly for African American mothers,” Singer said. “We must take action to fix this deadly crisis. This requires a comprehensive approach of prioritizing maternal health during pregnancy, childbirth, and throughout the postpartum period. Enacting this legislation package will reduce preventable deaths and ensure more New Jersey mothers and babies leave the hospital happy and healthy.”

“Asking commuters to pay more for this service is wrong,” Senator Singer said. “This is not the time for fare hikes. We have made good progress enacting reforms that will fix our broken transit system, but we need to dig deeper, particularity when it comes to exploring alternative revenue sources. This task force may be the key to discovering how we can finally get NJ Transit back on track.”
