Gusciora & Giblin Bill to Prohibit Grave Memorabilia from Being Sold by Scrap Metal Businesses Clears AssemblyLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Reed Gusciora and Thomas Giblin to protect cemetery memorial grave markings and other items from being pilfered and sold to scrap metal businesses was unanimously approved by the full Assembly on Thursday.
Under current law, it is illegal for scrapping businesses to accept stolen goods. The sponsors said that in this case the law should be more specific to particularly protect the veteran burial sites of soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this country.
DeAngelo, Giblin & Singleton Bill to Establish Licensure Procedures for Pool and Spa Service Contractors; Creates 7-Member Advisory Committee Passes Assembly(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo, Thomas Giblin and Troy Singleton to put in place safety procedures and trade guidelines for pool and spa contractors in New Jersey cleared the full Assembly on Thursday, 53-13-7.
"As it stands now, it is too easy for an individual to claim they are certified and knowledgeable in pool and spa contracting without actually having completed certification," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer, Middlesex). "Just as plumbing and electrical contractors, pool and spa contractors should have to meet certain certification requirements and safety guidelines."
