Quijano Statement on Airbnb Bill Veto

Asw. Annette Quijano Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Union) issued the following statement on Friday in response to Gov. Christie's veto of her "Airbnb" bill (A-4587), which would have imposed the same taxes and fees that hotels and motels must pay to the state on residences used as temporary lodging:

"This bill was about tax fairness and leveling the playing field among hospitality providers in the state. Hotels and motels must pay taxes on the rooms they occupy. Rooms booked through Airbnb are exempt. This gives Airbnb an unfair advantage over the competition, and denies municipalities important tax revenue. "

Quijano Will Introduce Resolution Urging US Department Of Education to Maintain Campus Sexual Assault Protections Created under Obama Administration

Legislation comes as department considers dismantling protections; group of Democratic attorney generals have sent letter to department asking that it keep the protections in place
Amid concerns that Obama-era rules to protect victims of campus sexual assault might be dismantled, Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-Union) said Friday she will introduce a resolution asking the U.S. Department of Education to maintain the protections.

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is considering changes to how the department enforces the gender equality law Title IX as it pertains to school responses to sexual assault reports.

"Rolling back these protections sends a terrible message to students," said Quijano. "We have seen case after case where school officials failed to properly address claims of sexual assault, and we have seen the impact of this negligence on victims. This is not the time to reverse course."
