Conaway & Singleton Announce Major Haul in State Funding for Burlington County
District Poised to Receive Nearly $50 Million for School Construction Projects, Thousands More for Home Heating Assistance for Low-Income FamiliesAssemblymen Herb Conaway, Jr., M.D. and Troy Singleton (both D-Burlington) on Friday announced two major awards in state funding for Burlington County, one to support school construction funding projects and another to help low-income families pay their home heating bills this year.
"This funding is critical to the foundation of our children's future," said Conaway. "These grants will provide a vital life line to help Burlington County districts undertake critical repairs without further burdening local property taxpayers. More importantly, they'll help provide a healthy learning environment for our students to flourish."
Senate Advances Stender, Conaway, Benson & Quijano Bill to Save Money, Improve Health of Public Employees with Chronic ConditionsLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Linda Stender, Herb Conaway M.D., Daniel R. Benson and Annette Quijano to establish a pilot program that would encourage better health care practices by employees with chronic health conditions was approved by the Senate Budget Committee on Thursday.
The bill (A-1214) would require the State Health Benefits Commission and the State Health Benefits Plan Design Committee to create a three-year pilot program to provide benefits coverage to select employees with chronic health conditions using a value-based benefit design under the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP). The following chronic health conditions would be targeted under the value-based benefit design: diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension and asthma.
