Lampitt, Benson, Jasey, Johnson, Mosquera, Muoio, Pinkin & Jimenez Bill to Ensure Safe Return to School for Students who have suffered Concussions Approved by AssemblyLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Pamela Lampitt, Dan Benson, Mila Jasey, Gordon Johnson, Gabriela Mosquera, Elizabeth Maher Muoio, Nancy Pinkin and Angelica Jimenez to ensure students who have suffered a concussion are properly vetted by a licensed health care professional before they can return to school was unanimously approved Thursday by the full Assembly.
"Concussions, especially in young people, should not be taken lightly. When a child suffers a concussion, there needs to be proper procedures in place for his or her return to school and learning," said Lampitt (D-Camden/Burlington). "This bill will help ensure the utmost caution is taken during their return to school in order to ease their transition back into the classroom and avoid further injuring themselves."
Muoio, Lampitt & Mosquera Bill to Combat Gender Pay Inequity Continues AdvancingLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Elizabeth Maher Muoio, Pamela Lampitt and Gabriela Mosquera to help combat gender pay inequities in the workplace continued advancing on Thursday, gaining approval from a Senate panel.
The bill (A-883), which was approved by the full Assembly in April, would require every bidder on a state contract or agreement to submit a report to the Division of Purchase and Property in the Department of Treasury that measures the extent to which men and women employed by that bidder perform the same or comparable work at different rates of pay and the extent to which job titles within that entity may be predominately held by members of the same gender.
Coughlin, Lampitt, Singleton, Benson, Vainieri Huttle & Mosquera Bill to Add Cyber-Harassment to Domestic Violence Statutes Continues to AdvanceLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Craig Coughlin, Pamela Lampitt, Troy Singleton, Daniel Benson, Valerie Vainieri Huttle and Gabriela Mosquera to bolster protections against cyber-harassment for domestic violence victims in New Jersey gained approval from the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee on Monday.
The bill (A-1946) would add cyber-harassment to the list of crimes considered domestic violence under the "Prevention of Domestic Violence Act of 1991."
"The internet is being used as another way for domestic violence predators to stalk and harass their victims," said Coughlin (D-Middlesex). "It's time to put cyber-stalking and harassment on the books to continue to protect domestic violence victims under the law."
