S-1755 Establishes New Jersey Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Act

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego’s bill protecting dementia patients and their guardians advanced out of committee today with unanimous bipartisan support. S-1755 establishes uniform procedures for addressing interstate conflicts regarding adult guardianship issues. Identical Assembly bill 2628 is sponsored by Assemblyman Scott Rudder and Assemblyman Chris Brown.

“Guardianship cases stretching beyond state boundaries raise questions about jurisdiction, laws and rights in today’s mobile society,” said Senator Addiego. “This legislation provides desperately necessary protections for seniors and their adult guardians, and clarifies the jurisdiction of the state court in guardian issues.”

Legislation introduced by Senator Dawn Marie Addiego would eliminate the possibility of parole for anyone convicted of the murder of a minor under the age of 18 in the course of a sex crime.

“The most heinous crime imaginable should have the most severe punishment possible,” said Senator Addiego. “A life sentence with no possibility of parole is justified since we do not have the death penalty available to us in New Jersey.”

Almost $200,000 of Taxpayer Money Has Paid Half the Salary for Full-Time Local Union President’s Salary in Last 5 Years

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder, and Assembly Chris Brown today called on the Pemberton Township Education Association to return almost $200,000 to the school district after the State Commission of Investigation reported the money paid half the salary for the full-time employment of the local union president.

“Pemberton is one of the high-needs districts receiving enormous levels of state aid, mandated by the State Supreme Court to provide for the ‘thorough and efficient’ education of the township’s children. This year alone, $80 million is being poured into the Pemberton schools, and to learn that some of that taxpayer money is being used to pay for a union administrator is intolerable,” said Assemblyman Chris Brown. “Not a single dime of this money helps foster better education or assists our teachers.”

8th District legislators Introduced Concurrent Resolution and Requested President Sweeney and Speaker Oliver to Post for Floor Vote on March 15

Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Scott Rudder and Assemblyman Chris Brown have introduced concurrent resolutions today which press for an independent State agency representing consumers to actively pursue a $45 million decrease in water rates from New Jersey American Water Company.

More pointedly, the bipartisan resolutions call on the New Jersey Division of Rate Counsel to abandon its admitted current negotiations on the company’s request for a 20 percent increase — which could lead to yet another rate increase.
