Senator Dawn Addiego (R-8) commended the inclusion of $200,000 in the approved FY 2015 New Jersey budget to protect and grow the state’s military installations in the likely event of another round of federal base realignments and closures.

“This was an extremely tough budget year, and some items in the budget that the Legislature approved were reduced or eliminated by Governor Christie using his line item veto power,” added Addiego. “The fact that this funding has remained in the budget should serve as proof to anyone watching that New Jersey will be prepared to fight for the future of our military bases.”

The Senate today passed legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) and Senator Dawn Marie Addiego (R-Burlington, Camden, Atlantic) to convene a planning summit to find ways to address an expected shortage of physicians practicing in the Garden State.

“Studies show New Jersey in the coming years will face a significant gap in the demand for care versus the number of physicians practicing in family care and important specialties,” said Singer, who also sponsors legislation to incentivize doctors to work in New Jersey. “If we truly want all communities to have access to a high level of care we must begin to address this issue now by finding ways to attract doctors in needed areas. Analyzing the problem and identifying possible solutions is an important first step.”
