Lampitt & Vainieri Huttle Bill to Uphold Right of Service Dog Access for People with Disabilities Clears Committee'Charlie's Law' Stems from N.J. Teen's Petition to Criminalize Denying Dogs Access in Public Places
Legislation Assemblywomen Pamela Lampitt and Valerie Vainieri Huttle sponsored to uphold the right of people with disabilities to have equal access to public facilities was advanced Thursday by an Assembly committee.
"People with disabilities rely on service animals to access services and opportunities that otherwise may be out of reach," said Lampitt (D-Camden/Burlington). "Federal and state law make it clear that bringing a service dog into a public facility is a right. When a disabled individual with a service animal is denied access to a public place, his or her rights are being infringed upon. This legislation would provide immediate recourse when this type of unlawful discrimination occurs."
Greenwald, Singleton, Lampitt, Mosquera & Barclay Bill to Refinance Student Loans through County Improvement Authorities Clears Assembly CommitteeLegislation Assembly Majority Leader Louis D. Greenwald and Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Pamela Lampitt, Gabriela Mosquera and Arthur Barclay sponsored to allow county improvement authorities to refinance county residents' student loan debt and make it easier for former college students to afford to stay in New Jersey was advanced Thursday by an Assembly committee.
"Student loan debt has crippled an entire generation, making it nearly impossible to start a family, buy a home or open a business," said Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington). "Creating an incentive for young people to settle down by offering debt relief will bring new energy into our local communities and improve the quality of our workforce."
