“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.”

“Military members who relocate their families here won’t have to struggle to get the assistance their children need and deserve. There will be no question about it,” said Singer (R-30). “When they are assigned here, they meet residency requirements as soon as they move in and will be treated like New Jerseyans.”

The bill, A-4107/S-2768, updates the State’s regulations of emergency medical services, including allowing a single paramedic who arrives at the scene of an emergency to begin treatment immediately, rather than waiting for a second medic.

“This is a critical piece of legislation that will save lives,” said Singer (R-30). “We have heard the frustrations of paramedics who found themselves in situations where people desperately needed help, but their hands were tied by regulations that forced them to wait for support from another authorized responder.

The Military Pro Bono Program would be established in the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs under the legislation, S-1388.

“Thousands of New Jersey residents are serving in the armed forces on active-duty or as reserves,” said Senator Singer (R-30). “Many will be returning home after deployments oversees in Iraq, Afghanistan or elsewhere. Some may have been adversely affected by or during deployment and may require legal help or guidance to re-establish their lives back home.

“The mental health of young people in New Jersey is a growing area of concern, especially after the unnecessary lockdowns during the pandemic,” said Singer (R-30). “Currently, there is a greater demand for inpatient mental health treatment and services for juvenile patients than there are available beds. In fact, some health care facilities even have vacant adult mental health treatment beds, which under current law, cannot be used to treat juvenile patients. My legislation will create a pilot program to study whether these facilities can effectively treat juvenile patients using vacant adult beds. This will help so many patients receive the care and treatment they need and maximize the use of mental health resources throughout New Jersey.”

Senator Robert Singer said the Murphy administration needs to do a better job of listening to and working with local leaders in shore communities who have expressed serious concerns about the impact of pop-up parties on public safety.

“The Jersey Shore has always been a welcoming place for visitors, but many small towns are not equipped to handle thousands of teenagers who suddenly pour off trains and flood their streets, boardwalks, and commercial districts for pop-up parties organized on social media,” Singer (R-30) said. “We saw what happened in Long Branch a few weeks ago when 5,000 teens and young adults suddenly showed up in Pier Village. People were jumping on cars, fighting, and openly smoking pot and drinking in public. The local police had an extremely difficult time trying to restore order. Most shore towns looked at what happened in Long Branch and are hoping they’re not next, but hope isn’t a plan. That’s why they’re looking for help and guidance from the Murphy administration that so far has not been forthcoming.”

“There are thousands of New Jersey residents in recovery who struggle with addiction every day,” said Singer (R-30). “Many of these individuals rely on partial care services, which include support programs such as counseling and psychiatric care. My legislation will increase Medicaid reimbursement for the critical services that partial care programs provide to some of New Jersey’s most vulnerable residents.”

As Jersey Shore towns face the likelihood of more pop-up “parties” like the one Saturday that lured more than 5,000 raucous young adults to Long Branch forcing businesses to close and municipal officials to declare a 9 p.m. curfew, Senator Joe Pennacchio and Senator Robert Singer said legislation they introduced last summer may hold the key to preserving the summer season.

After an early summer pop-up mob last June, Pennacchio and Singer introduced a bill that would expand the legal definition of “riot,” and increase penalties for crimes committed during a riot.

“Our bill would provide communities and law enforcement with the tools necessary to combat these organized mobs,” said Pennacchio (R-26). “If it was passed a year ago, maybe we wouldn’t be worrying about the next ‘event’ that could erupt in violence, property damage and business interruption during the crucial summer season.
