“New Jersey’s essential employees continue to go to work each and every day, inevitably putting themselves in harms way as they serve their communities,” said Senator Singer (R-30). “Frontline workers who contract COVID-19 should have access to financial safeguards and quality medical care. This law will help our heroes receive the lifesaving healthcare they have provided for thousands of New Jerseyans.”

Senator Bob Singer (R-30) said a proposed tax on commonly prescribed opioids would make health care more expensive for both patients and providers during the current public health emergency.

“The opioid tax proposed by Governor Murphy wouldn’t improve access to care or make health insurance more affordable for families hit with rising premiums, nor would it fund treatment programs for those struggling with substance use disorders,” said Singer, the ranking Republican member on the Senate Health Committee. “What the governor has proposed is nothing more than a money grab that would funnel millions of dollars at the expense of patients into the black hole of the State budget to pay for spending completely unrelated to health care.”

The proposed $15 million opioid tax is one component of more than $1 billion of tax increases announced by Governor Phil Murphy this week in support of his newly proposed State Budget for 2021. In addition to the tax increases, the governor’s plan also relies on more than $4 billion of borrowing to support higher levels of spending next year.

“Sunshine and clear skies currently determine the fate of restaurant owners and employees across New Jersey,” said Singer. “A downpour should not put a damper on a restaurant’s ability to open and stay in business. Today and tomorrow’s rain and thunder are the perfect examples of why restaurants should be able to safely open and operate at a limited capacity indoors.”

Senator Robert Singer today said the woman serving time for lying to police and contributing to the death of a New Jersey State Trooper in 2010 should remain behind bars.

“Out of respect for the Trooper’s family and all the men and women across the state who risk their lives to protect citizens and enforce our laws, I hope the Governor will think twice about releasing this reckless felon from prison,” said Singer (R-30). “The Administration should do the right thing and ensure she serves out the duration of her sentence.”

Just as it did to health care workers and first responders, the virus pandemic stressed the capabilities of local and county health departments to the breaking point.

Senator Robert Singer is determined to ensure the small, over-burdened health departments are better prepared for expanded public safety roles if the coronavirus resurfaces in the fall.

“As bad as the virus has been in New Jersey, claiming the lives of 11,000 people, we may well have dodged a bullet this time,” said Singer (R-30). “However, health experts and scientists warn a second wave of COVID is almost inevitable without coordinated, aggressive efforts. The next round could be even more dangerous, and it is essential our local and county health departments have the tools necessary to effectively respond to outbreaks. We must be battle ready at the local, county and state levels.”

However, many people and businesses are financially at a breaking point.
