Spencer, Vainieri Huttle & Eustace Bill to Curb Use of Single-Use Carryout Plastic Bags Advances in Assembly(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats L. Grace Spencer, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, and Timothy Eustace to discourage the use of single-use carryout plastic bags was approved on Thursday by an Assembly panel.
"Plastic bags are a source of numerous environmental concerns," said Spencer (D-Essex). "These bags wash up in our waterways, are hazardous to marine life and even pollute the air when burned at landfills. With this legislation, we can encourage more stores to make environmentally responsible choices when it comes to shopping bags."
Assembly Panel Advances Spencer Bill to Ensure Notification of Next-of-Kin when a Resident at a Senior Housing Facility Passes Away
Bill was Inspired by a Death at an Orange Senior Housing FacilityLegislation sponsored by Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer to establish protocol for notifying the next-of-kin when a resident of a senior housing facility passes away was unanimously approved Thursday by an Assembly panel.
"For anyone with an elderly relative who is away from home, finding out that the family member died is a realization of the greatest fear possible. Perhaps the only thing worse is finding out that he or she died a week ago," said Spencer (D-Essex). "This legislation will put a plan in place and eliminate the chance of miscommunication, or the lack of communication altogether, when it comes to sensitive matters such as this."
