Greenwald & Weinberg Join With Advocates To Block Christie Administration Effort to Loosen NJ Gun LawsAssembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald and Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg announced today that they will introduce legislation that would block an attempt by the Christie Administration to loosen New Jersey's strict gun laws. The leaders were joined today by gun-safety and domestic violence prevention advocates at a Statehouse press conference in announcing their effort.
The Senate and Assembly Concurrent Resolutions seek to prohibit the adoption of regulations proposed by the administration to expand the definition of justifiable need for the purpose of obtaining a gun carry permit.
Greenwald calls on DCA to Use Federal Grant Funds to Aid Beleaguered Atlantic County Residents
Request Follows U.S. Treasury Announcement of $45.3 Million in Hardest Hit Funds to New JerseyAssembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald on Friday urged the NJ Department of Community Affairs to take advantage of a new federal aid allotment to assist residents in Atlantic County who have been among some of the hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis amidst a localized economic downturn.
Greenwald's urging comes after the U.S. Department of Treasury announced on Thursday that it has allocated $45.3 million in federal aid to New Jersey as part of the Hardest Hit Fund, which is designed to assist states with the highest foreclosure rates after the 2010 housing market downturn, New Jersey being consistently at or near the top of foreclosure rates nationally. This aid allotment comes in addition to the $69.2 million that the state received earlier this year.
