Tax-Paying Residents Deserve Better Use of Their Hard-Earned Money

Legislation withholding the state operating aid of any public or independent college enrolling students who are not lawfully present in the United States will be introduced by Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder and Assemblyman Pat Delany.

“Hard-working, tax-paying Americans, who follow the rules, are struggling to pay their fair share and to educate their own children. The use of taxpayers’ money for the benefit of people who refuse to follow the rules is unacceptable,” said Assemblyman Rudder.

The bill, which Senator Addiego will introduce in the Senate on Monday, specifies that institutions of higher education shall not be eligible to receive State operating aid in any fiscal year in which students, determined not to be lawfully present in the country, are enrolled.

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego (R-Burlington) issued the following statement today following Governor Christie’s State Budget address:

“Over the past decade Democrats relied on tax increases and one-shot gimmicks to fuel their insatiable appetite for spending. The demand placed on taxpayers forced many residents to move and businesses to relocate taking their jobs with them. Those days are thankfully over.

“Governor Christie is looking at the big picture and doing what is in the best interest for all New Jersey residents. By reducing overall state spending, increasing college grants and providing more property tax relief for families and businesses New Jersey will become a more affordable state to live and work in.

Addiego, Rudder & Delany: Abuse of Blue Lights Can Not Be Tolerated

Lawmakers Will Introduce Three-Bill Package to Protect Public

A package of bills to be introduced by Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder, and Assemblyman Pat Delany increasing the penalty for misuse of a flashing blue emergency light, establishing a fourth-degree crime for using a vehicle to impersonate a police officer, and providing for fines for selling blue lights to unqualified individuals.

The legislators were motivated by a recent incident in Medford in the 8th District. A teenage female driver was pulled over by a vehicle flashing a blue emergency light, but after she was questioned by the male “officer,” it became apparent that he was not a policeman.

“This is a story that could have had horrible repercussions,” said Senator Addiego. “Drivers of all ages need to be assured that flashing blue lights are used only for legitimate, lawful purposes. Public safety demands the highest level of public confidence.”

Senators Diane Allen (R- Burlington/Camden), Jennifer Beck (R- Monmouth/Mercer), and Dawn Marie Addiego (R- Burlington) were joined by Republican women of the Assembly to call for a vote on Anne Patterson to the New Jersey Supreme Court. Their comments come in response to controversy surrounding the appointment of an interim justice to fill the vacancy created by John Wallace’s departure from the bench.

“There is no need for the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court to continue,” said Senator Allen. “The dispute over the interim justice could end tomorrow if the Senate President and Judiciary Committee Chairman would schedule confirmation hearings and a vote on Anne Patterson’s nomination to the Court. In fact, we never would have gotten to this point in the first place had the Majority respected the Governor’s Constitutional authority to make judicial appointments and the Senate’s responsibility to actively consider and vote on the nomination. Advice and consent means an up or down vote, not delay and deal cutting. Anne Patterson is extremely well qualified and has built an impressive legal and public service career. She should be judged on those merits and those merits alone, and all Senators should be given the opportunity to register their opinion of the nomination on the floor of the Senate.”

Sen. Addiego Lauds Committee Approval of Arbitration Reform

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego (R- Burlington), member of the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism, and Historic Preservation Committee, issued this statement following the panel’s approval of legislation reforming interest arbitration for public employees:

“Taxpayers are the winners under this agreement,” said Senator Addiego. “The compromise proposal reached between legislative leaders and the Governor is a major milestone for reform in New Jersey- one that too many residents thought would never come. Placing a realistic cap on arbitration awards, speeding up the time in which cases must be resolved, and requiring that arbitrators be chosen at random will reduce labor costs and the pressures they exert on local budgets. I look forward to supporting this bold property tax reform measure when it comes to the floor of the Senate.”

Republican members of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee today called on Senate Democrats to include complementary legislation from Republican lawmakers in efforts to spur job creation in New Jersey:

Senator Kevin O’Toole (R- Essex, Bergen, Passaic):

Unemployed New Jersey residents expect that we all work together to attract business and create jobs- regardless of our philosophical differences and political affiliations. The debate we had today in the Budget Committee is one that Republicans asked to start in January. I am hopeful that these efforts are just a starting point in the Legislature’s efforts to put New Jersey back to work and that other ideas that have been presented on both sides of the aisle will be included in further discussions.
