Singer’s bill, S-2561, would establish a minimum Medicaid reimbursement rate for providers of adult medical daycare services.

“Adult day health services are crucial to the physical and emotional well-being of New Jersey seniors,” said Singer (R-30). “An increase in funding for these providers will help them better assist, protect, and support the elderly throughout our state. With increased support, these facilities would be able to offer more services and specialized care, including nursing, nutrition, medication management, and both physical and behavioral therapy.”

In response to concerns that New Jersey’s criminal justice reform efforts have gone too far and jeopardize public safety, Senator Robert Singer will introduce legislation giving courts greater discretion to determine if and under what conditions defendants accused of violent crimes should be released on bail.

“Like other states, New Jersey rushed to implement criminal justice reforms that let most defendants remain free while awaiting trial,” said Singer (R-30). “Although the reforms were well-intentioned, we’ve seen cases around the nation where people accused of violent acts have been set free only to commit horrific new crimes. If we don’t restore some sanity to our law, it’s only a matter of time before that happens in New Jersey with tragic consequences.”

Known as the New Jersey Ticket Consumer Choice Act, Singer’s bill (S-376) would guarantee the right of ticket purchasers to opt-out of restrictions that limit their ability to sell or give away the tickets they have purchased.

“When an individual buys a ticket, they should be able to do whatever they want with it,” said Singer (R-30). “Some sellers have restrictions that limit the ticket-holders’ freedom to resell the ticket. Restrictions can go so far as to forbid giving the ticket as a gift.

New Bill Would Implement 3% Annual Toll Hikes on GSP, NJT & AC Expressway

“Voters just turned out in droves to send the message that New Jersey is too expensive,” said Singer, a member of the Senate Transportation Committee. “It would have been lunacy for Democrats still reeling from Election Day to forge ahead with automatic annual toll increases on roads that hundreds of thousands of commuters have to travel every day. Thankfully there was enough sense on the Transportation Committee to not even consider the bill today. Hopefully, we never will.”

Sen. Robert Singer and Assemblymen Sean Kean and Edward Thomson, lawmakers from Legislative District 30, which includes Howell, say a proposed 319-unit project in the township illustrates the urgent need for affordable housing reform. When the Legislature reconvenes after the November election, they are calling on lawmakers to immediately consider affordable housing policy that includes eliminating mandatory construction, and ensuring housing obligation calculations account for the town’s infrastructure, among other factors.

“When a judge mandates hundreds of new housing units for a town, they often fail to consider the uniqueness of each community and the impact on the town’s quality of life,” said Singer. “It is time for the Legislature to fulfill its responsibility to enact a sensible affordable housing policy which serves the best interest of the communities we represent.”

“What happened last weekend had nothing to do with partying and having a good time,” said Pennacchio (R-26). “It was lawlessness, and there is no appetite for that kind of behavior in New Jersey. Our police and law enforcement deserve credit for ensuring things didn’t get even more dangerous, but the situation was extremely volatile and had the potential to get out of control.
