Singleton, Conaway, DeAngelo, Benson, Muoio, Houghtaling & Zwicker Bill to Promote Cost-Cutting Small Business Improvements Approved by Assembly PanelLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Herb Conaway, Wayne DeAngelo, Daniel R. Benson, Elizabeth Muoio, Eric Houghtaling and Andrew Zwicker to facilitate cost-effective environmentally friendly improvements for small businesses recently was approved by an Assembly panel.
"Energy efficiency upgrades have the potential to save small businesses thousands of dollars each year," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "Small businesses are not churning out enormous profits. Keeping the costs of lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and other similar expenses at a minimum can make a difference to their bottom line. Helping small businesses thrive not only benefits our business community but also our overall economy."

"Communication is key to fortifying our bond with the military bases," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex), vice-chair of the Assembly Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee. "There needs to be an open channel between the installations and all agencies and levels of government necessary to ensure that the needs of everyone connected to them are being met."

"This is a little adjustment of current law for the great sacrifice and service made by our disabled veterans," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "All New Jersey veterans should be able to take advantage of this discount program. They have earned it."
DeAngelo Bill to Better Protect Unemployment Insurance Fund Advanced by Assembly PanelLegislation Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo sponsored to better protect the state's Unemployment Insurance Fund from fraud and ensure it's used only by those it was created to assist - unemployed New Jerseyans - was advanced Monday by an Assembly committee.
"Out-of-work New Jerseyans deserve this help, and every taxpayer deserves to know the benefits system they pay into is protected as best as possible from fraud that, in the end, only costs everyone more money," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "The unemployment fund exists to help New Jerseyans get back on their feet as they find work, and it should be protected for their use and their use only. With these few steps, we can better ensure that happens."
