“The irresponsible use of lasers jeopardizes public safety and puts lives at risk,” said Singer (R-30). “When police officers are targeted by lasers, they may assume a weapon is pointed at them. If they draw their weapons in response to the threat, it can lead to tragic consequences.

“At the same time he is telling the public it is OK to take their masks off, go dancing and go out drinking with friends shoulder-to-shoulder at the bar, Murphy is forcing kids to keep their masks on,” said Singer (R-30). “The science and data are clear. Youngsters are not susceptible to COVID, and they aren’t virus super spreaders. The time for masks has passed.”

“The unique challenges of educating students with special needs lead to disagreements between concerned parents and school districts that often end up in court,” said Senator Oroho (R-Morris/Sussex/Warren). “Long delays only add to the frustration and can interfere with the development and learning opportunities of children. The unit established within the Division of Administrative Law by this legislation would increase efficiency and help all parties by reaching more timely decisions and resolutions.”

“As vaccination rates increase and infection rates decline, New Jerseyans are eager to get back to normal this summer and back to their local pool,” said Singer (R-30). “Unfortunately, there’s a lot of confusion over executive orders that have changed, are unclear, or conflict with other orders. With Memorial Day just weeks away, it’s imperative that Governor Murphy clarify how community swimming pools may operate. I would suggest that many of the pool restrictions put in place last summer are no longer necessary given the improving trends, vaccinations, and everything we now know about how little transmission occurs outdoors.”

“I am pleased that this legislation was signed today. All veterans and their families deserve to be laid to rest with dignity,” said Singer (R-30). “Knowing that there are unclaimed remains of deceased veterans, their spouses, and their dependents sitting in funeral homes or being buried without honor is heartbreaking. This legislation would ensure the remains of veterans’ loved ones can be claimed by a qualifying veterans’ organization, so they can receive the proper burial they deserve.”

“People are starting to realize some of the concerning provisions of New Jersey’s new marijuana laws that will cause real problems if we don’t address them now,” said Senator Singer. “Parents are worried that parental notification is now prohibited when kids are caught with drugs or alcohol. They have a right to know if their 12-year-old is smoking pot. Police officers are concerned that the new laws treat them like criminals. They’re not the enemy and we shouldn’t hamstring their efforts to keep kids away from drugs and alcohol.”

The proposed convention would be held for the purpose of requiring a balanced federal budget, imposing term limits, and revising the method for awarding electoral votes.

“Our nation is headed in the wrong direction and this will help turn it around,” said Singer (R-30). “Imprudent and irresponsible federal spending is to blame for a crushing national debt that threatens our economy and national stability in the near future. A balanced federal budget will help control wasteful spending and strengthen the nation’s financial foundation.”

“We have heard from many constituents who live in adult communities (age 55 and older) that they would like to be vaccinated at a site within their community,” said Singer. “Many of the people who live in these age-restricted communities are older and many do not drive or drive long distances.”

Senator Joe Vitale, chairman of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee, and Senator Robert Singer, the ranking Republican member of the committee, issued the following joint statement harshly condemning the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners for reinstating the professional license of Bryan Bajakian, a convicted sex offender:

(SenateNJ.com)

“This is a decision that defies common sense and ignores the safety of the public the board is responsible for protecting. Anyone who thinks it’s a good idea to reinstate the license of a convicted sex offender who preyed on children can’t be trusted to exercise their oversight responsibilities, or to even to heed their own mission statement directing the board to ‘protect the health, safety and welfare of the people of New Jersey.’
