Senator James W. Holzapfel (R-10) and Senator Robert Singer (R-30) have submitted legislation authorizing investment of $8 billion over five years in transportation infrastructure funding pursuant to Governor Christie’s Transportation Capital Program.

“The Governor has come up with a plan that is fiscally responsible, invests in our infrastructure, and accepts the reality that taxpayers cannot afford higher gas taxes,” said Holzapfel. “This plan meets the emergent needs of New Jersey’s transportation system while reducing the reliance on borrowing that nearly bankrupted the Transportation Trust Fund under Governor Corzine.”

Senator Robert Singer, R-Monmouth/Ocean, slammed “The New Jersey Health Benefit Exchange Act,” approved by the Senate today.

“Unlike other states, New Jersey has a 20-year-old system that assures affordable health coverage to individual and small group markets,” Singer said. “Two boards in the state Department of Banking and Insurance already cover the intent of the Exchange Act, for example by certifying products in those markets, controlling rates, publicizing the availability of coverage, mandating guaranteed issue and renewal, as well as providing lesser waiting periods for coverage and longer dependent coverage.”

Legislation sponsored by Senators Bob Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) and Richard J. Codey (D-Essex, Morris) that aims to implement a “Yellow Dot Program” to provide emergency responders with vital health information about motorists at accident scenes was passed today by the full Senate.

“This measure gives our responders critical health information and a better chance of reviving our motorists in life-threatening circumstances, who cannot communicate,” Singer said. “Yellow Dot programs have proven to be an effective, relatively simple initiative in several states, including Connecticut, New York, Virginia. This is worth our every effort, as you can’t put a price on saving lives.”

Paramount legislation by Senator Bob Singer and Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean to increase fines on drivers who illegally pass school buses was unanimously advanced today by the Senate Transportation Committee.

“We’re dealing with one of the most life-threatening driving offenses and the stakes must be raised for those committing such a senseless crime,” said Singer (R-Monmouth and Ocean). “Vulnerable, defenseless children being picked up or dropped off along our roadways can be killed because of such carelessness. It’s more than reasonable to make violators pay double.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth and Ocean) said a plea deal reached in a case of senseless killings of innocent bystanders in Elizabeth is an egregious example of why the death penalty should be reinstated in New Jersey.

“A shooter inĀ the murdersĀ of a 13-year-old boy and a 54-year-old construction worker can walk free at age 42,” Singer said. “Where’s the justice in that?”

Portugal Has Hand Out for American Dollars, But Won’t Hand Over Murderer Who Escaped from New Jersey Prison

President Obama should not consider giving any assistance to Portugal as long as it continues to shield violent American fugitive George Wright, 30th District Republicans Sen. Robert Singer and Assemblymen Dave Rible and Sean T. Kean said today.

“George Wright is a convicted killer who escaped from prison and is a fugitive from justice,” Singer, R-Ocean and Monmouth, said. “The Portuguese courts erred when they ruled that the statute of limitations on his murder conviction has expired. A convicted murderer cannot just run out the clock on his sentence by hijacking a plane and leaving the country, as Wright has done. He must be brought to justice and serve the term of imprisonment to which he was sentenced.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-30) which would require the Commissioner of Health and Senior Services to convene a planning summit to examine an expected shortage of physicians practicing in New Jersey has been approved by the Senate Health, Human Services & Senior Citizens Committee.

“A recently completed report predicts that within the next decade, New Jersey will face a shortage of thousands of physicians practicing in family care and important specialties,” said Singer. “Unless we get to work now to prevent that shortage, many New Jerseyans may soon find themselves without doctors or unable to obtain appointments or treatments when they need them.”
