DeAngelo Bill to Prevent Power Outages Caused by Downed Trees Advances in Assembly; Affects 1.2 Million Customers

In light of severe storms last March prompting power outages and causing damage to utility poles throughout the state, an Assembly panel approved legislation Assembly Democrat Wayne DeAngelo sponsored to develop a plan for tree trimming and vegetation maintenance.

Last March, New Jersey was struck by a series of severe weather events that impacted more than 1.2 million electric utility customers, leaving some without power for up to 11 days, and causing millions of dollars in property damages. The frequent storms presented response and recovery challenges to each electric distribution company in the state. Some of the extended power outages occurred because power lines were damaged by uprooted trees and toppled branches.

Lampitt, Moriarty, DeAngelo & Chiaravalloti Bill Protecting Minimum Wage Workers Clears Labor Committee

A bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Pamela Lampitt, Paul Moriarty, Wayne DeAngelo, and Nick Chiaravalloti revising part of the Prevailing Wage Act was approved by the Assembly Labor Committee on Monday.

“There are bad actors in New Jersey who have found it more cost effective to pay the penalty for wage and hour violations rather than pay their employees full wages,” said Lampitt (D-Camden/Burlington). “The penalties for violations of New Jersey’s Wage and Hour laws have not been updated in nearly three decades it is critical that adjustments be made to protect our workers and ensure that they are fairly paid for their labor. Our workers are a priority in New Jersey, and this bill would increase paycheck security.”
