Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer to eliminate a costly state mandate requiring all full-time college students in New Jersey maintain health insurance coverage was approved Thursday by the Senate Higher Education Committee.

“Families and students are already struggling with the rising costs of college and should not have to face additional, burdensome state mandates,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean.) “By lowering financial burdens, New Jersey’s college students are better poised to finish their degrees and become our next generation of leaders.”

Senators Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) and Joseph Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) urged Senate Democrat leaders on Thursday to reinstate vital Superstorm Sandy recovery legislation to Monday’s Community and Urban Affairs Committee agenda.

“It is appalling that Senate Democrats have decided to punish towns and residents devastated by the worst storm in our state’s history for personal, political motives,” said Singer. “Instead of choosing to work together to provide critical assistance to our residents and businesses, Senate Democrats have decided instead to hold them captive as political pawns.”

The state Senate passed Monday an amended version of Senator Robert Singer’s legislation to eliminate a costly state mandate that county college students in New Jersey maintain and prove health insurance coverage.

“College is an increasingly expensive burden on students and families, and the state should not be in the business of making it more financially daunting,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “We can allow the next generation of leaders to focus more on their professional aspirations than whether or not they can afford to graduate.”

Gov. Chris Christie signed into law bipartisan tanning legislation sponsored by Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean).

Senator Singer’s prohibits people younger than 14 from spray tanning and those younger than 17 from using tanning beds in tanning facilities. Seventeen-year-olds can use tanning beds only if a parent or guardian is present at the tanning facility for initial consultation.

“In sponsoring and advocating for this law, I have given careful consideration to its potential impact on the business community, but I firmly believe it is my primary responsibility as a Senator to protect children,” Singer said. “There are copious studies proving that tanning can be habit-forming and impose severe, life-threatening health risks upon young children and teenagers.”

The state Senate passed bipartisan tanning legislation sponsored by Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean).

Senator Singer’s S-1172 prohibits minors younger than 14 from spray tanning and those younger than 17 from using tanning beds in tanning facilities. Seventeen-year-olds can use tanning beds only if a parent or guardian is present at the tanning facility for initial consultation.

“Tanning can be habit-forming, and children and young teens are the most-vulnerable to the life-threatening risks of skin cancer,” Singer emphasized. “We hear of serious, sometimes fatal cases of skin cancer in young people in their twenties and thirties who were frequent users of artificial tanning beds as teens.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Bob Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to provide emergency responders with vital health information about injured motorists was passed today by the full Assembly.

The legislation, S-71, would provide interested motorists a yellow sticker to place on their vehicles to notify emergency responders that critical health information is available in the glove compartment.

“In case drivers cannot communicate during an emergency, this measure gives our responders critical health information and a better chance of reviving our motorists in life-threatening circumstances,” Singer said. “Yellow Dot programs are effective, simple initiatives in several states, including Connecticut, New York, Virginia. This is worth our every effort, as you can’t put a price on saving lives.”
