Senator Dawn Marie Addiego, Assemblyman Christopher J. Brown and Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg (all R-8) have announced legislation that would protect schools and public safety agencies from preventable telephone outages and require all public utilities to maintain dedicated support staff to provide those organizations with priority service.

A prolonged and preventable utility outage beginning on May 12, 2014 that left Southampton Township Schools without telephone service or the ability to communicate was met with an inadequate response by service providers. (Southampton Township School District)

The legislation (S-2594/Assembly version pending introduction) was prompted by a telephone service outage lasting more than a day that left the Southampton Township Board of Education and its schools with “minimal capability to communicate with parents, law enforcement, and emergency responders if necessary.”

“With so many children gathered together for so much of the time, it’s crucial that schools have priority access to resolve utility issues,” said Addiego. “Given recent events at Newtown and elsewhere, we can all understand the importance of school officials having access to working phones should they need to call for help.”

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.”

The New Jersey Senate approved today a resolution honoring Steve Sabol, sponsored by Senators Diane Allen and Dawn Marie Addiego, both R-Burlington, and supported by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

“Steve Sabol is one of New Jersey’s most innovative entrepreneurs and his creativity has revolutionized both sports and documentary cinematography around the world,” Allen said. “He has made Mount Laurel the home of America’s favorite sport, having created a model business employing hundreds of people and boasting the world’s largest sports film library. He showed us the passion of the game — and made it our passion, too.”

“With ingenuity and grace, Steve Sabol has humanized America’s favorite sport bringing people inside the hearts and minds of their football heroes,” added Addiego. “Continuing Steve Sabol’s passion, NFL Films will continue to make Burlington County proud, as it chronicles the season of New Jersey’s Super Bowl.”
