Wisniewski & Quijano Bill Protecting 'Dreamers' from President Trump's un-American Threats Approved by N.J. AssemblyLegislation Assemblyman John Wisniewski and Assemblywoman Annette Quijano sponsored opposing any attempt by President Trump to target immigrant students who know only America as their home was approved 44-11-7 Wednesday by the Assembly.
"Many of these students who live in New Jersey applied for the DACA program so that they could work and be able to afford the pursuit of a college education," said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex). "These students know only America as their home and are hard-working employees who contribute to the economy and to the rich diversity of our schools. Rescinding DACA would expose these students to the threat of immediate deportation and deprive the state of their many contributions. That's immoral and un-American, and we must make clear that we oppose any effort by President Trump to punish these young men and women..."
Wisniewski Statement on Testimony by Port Authority ChairmanAssemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex), chair of the Assembly Transportation and Independent Authorities Committee, issued the following statement Wednesday following testimony from John J. Degnan, chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Board of Commissioners, concerning the Port Authority's draft 2017-2026 capital plan:
"Chairman Degnan seemed to walk into today's meeting with his mind already set on supporting a flawed plan for the future of the Port Authority. After two public hearings and 250 written comments, there is no plan to change the draft, which is disheartening, to say the least."
Wisniewski, Pinkin & Chiaravalloti Bill to Launch Public Awareness Campaign for 'Move Over' Law Clears Committee2009 Measure Requires Drivers to Slow Down, Change Lanes Upon Approaching Emergency Vehicles
Legislation Assembly Democrats John Wisniewski, Nancy Pinkin and Nicholas Chiaravalloti sponsored to help protect law enforcement officers, highway workers and others whose work requires them to exit a vehicle on New Jersey's high-speed roadways was advanced Wednesday by an Assembly committee.
"The loss of Trooper Sean Cullen last year was a tragic reminder of how important it is for drivers to slow down and change lanes as they approach an emergency vehicle on the side of the road," said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex). "Only if drivers understand and abide by it can the 'Move Over' law serve its purpose, which is to keep men and women safe while they're on the job."

Wisniewski Remains Skeptical on Capital Plan as Transportation Committee Awaits Port Authority TestimonyAssemblyman John Wisniewski, chair of the Assembly Transportation and Independent Authorities Committee, remains skeptical of the Port Authority's 10-year capital plan prior to receiving testimony from Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Chairman John J. Degnan, who is scheduled to testify before the committee Wednesday.
"We look forward to hearing directly from Chairman Degnan on the Port Authority's capital plan," said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex). "This plan spends billions of dollars to help a few Wall Streeters get to Newark Airport a few minutes quicker rather than prioritizing a long-overdue bus terminal for the quarter-million working women and men who commute through the terminal every day. We need to hear how this plan will help the middle class residents of New Jersey get to work on time and at a reasonable cost."
