“Addiction does not discriminate. This is a disease that has affected seemingly countless New Jerseyans, regardless of their age, race, religion, or economic status,” Singer (R-30) said. “Giving drivers the ability to purchase a ‘Support Recovery’ license plate will help us fund lifesaving sober living facilities. By raising awareness, the plates will also help us educate local families about the dangers of substance abuse.”

“We are another step closer to creating ‘Support Recovery’ license plates,” Kean (R-30) said. “These license plates will not only provide funding for sober living programs, but will also serve as a sign that New Jerseyans are committed to fighting the opioid crisis.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Bob Singer to prohibit NJ Transit from settling a discrimination or equal opportunity case, unless the settlement agreement has been approved by the NJ Transit Board of Directors, has passed the Senate Transportation Committee.

Sen. Bob Singer’s bill would prohibit NJ Transit from settling discrimination cases, unless the settlement is approved by the NJT Board of Directors. Between 2012 and 2017, NJT paid more than $12 million in settlement agreements. All but one were related to discrimination cases. (SenateNJ.com)

Between 2012 and 2017, NJ Transit paid more than $12 million in settlement agreements, according to records provided to the Legislature. All but one were related to discrimination cases.

“This bill is about protecting innocent people from unfair settlements and increasing transparency at a state agency – two issues that are of grave importance when it comes to protecting the public trust,” Senator Singer  (R-30) said. “NJ Transit is on thin ice. We need to do everything we can to hold them accountable for how they treat employees and ratepayers, and how they spend taxpayer dollars. Bringing these settlements out of the shadows is a step in the right direction.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer to revamp and expand the New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship Program (NJ STARS) passed the New Jersey Senate.

“College affordability is one of the greatest concerns for students and their families,” said Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean). “Increasing the opportunity for our top high school students to qualify for State-funded scholarships will help them to focus more on their education and less on the financial burden of paying for college. By covering a significant portion of tuition bills through these scholarships, we’ll protect more students from student loan debt.”

“Many students dive into college without knowing how long it will take or how much they’re going to owe when they graduate,” said Sen. Singer. “Six months after they get their diploma, they’re suddenly slammed with sky-high monthly loan payments that they can’t afford. We can stop this from happening by giving our high school students a better understanding of how student loans work, explaining the benefits of applying for grants and scholarships, and highlighting the importance of finishing a degree as quickly as possible. ”

The following editorial by Senator Robert Singer (R-30) on marijuana decriminalization was published in The Daily Record on January 26, 2018:

Efforts to legalize marijuana in New Jersey would have our state take too big a step, too quickly. Decriminalization may be a better and more sensible option in the short-term.

Sen. Bob Singer says that marijuana decriminalization may be a good alternative to full legalization for New Jersey in the short-term. (Pixabay)

Like many others, I have concerns with individuals being arrested for possession of small amounts of marijuana. That’s why I have sponsored legislation, S-472, that would decriminalize the possession of 15 grams of pot or less.

“To provide quality, comprehensive healthcare for all New Jerseyans, we must ease the process of integrating behavioral health and primary care services,” Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) said. “Forcing facilities to obtain multiple licenses just so they can provide a full spectrum of health services is an unnecessary restriction that only serves in blocking patients from accessing the care they need.”
