Assembly Approves Johnson, DeAngelo, Andrzejczak & Mukherji Bill to Allow Children of Active Duty Military to Stay in Same School
Measure Would Permit Children to Remain in Same District Regardless of Where Parent is Deployed on Active Duty(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Gordon M. Johnson, Wayne DeAngelo, Bob Andrzejczak & Raj Mukherji that would allow the children of reservists or National Guard members called to active duty to remain in the same school district regardless of active duty relocations cleared the full Assembly 75-0.
"Being called up to active duty is stressful on everyone, especially for children who are routinely uprooted when their mother or father's orders come in," said Johnson (D-Bergen), a Retired Major in the U.S. Army Reserve. "Allowing children of active duty reservists to stay enrolled in the same school, regardless of where their parents are stationed would help mitigate that stress."
Bipartisan Port Authority Reform Legislation Gains Assembly Approval, Heads to Governorís DeskComprehensive bi-state, bipartisan legislation to increase transparency at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was passed Thursday by the Assembly, giving it final legislative approval. The two approved bills now head to the governor's desk.
Sponsors of the bills, Assembly Democrats Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Speaker Vincent Prieto, Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, Gordon Johnson, Tim Eustace, Joseph Lagana and Carmelo Garcia, noted that the legislation will introduce integrity to the bi-state agency.
"Long before 'Bridge-gate' was even a term, we have been pushing for reforms at the Port Authority to address the gross mismanagement and abuse of taxpayer funds that have been well-documented. We finally have a chance now to put real reforms in place, and we can't squander this opportunity," said Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen).
