Oliver, Handlin, Vainieri Huttle & Quijano Bipartisan Bill Package to Combat Abuse against the Elderly & Disabled Gains Assembly Panel Approval
New Policy Strategy is Result of Ongoing Meetings between Oliver, Handlin & Stakeholders throughout NJAn Assembly panel on Monday approved a bipartisan package of bills sponsored by Assemblywomen Sheila Oliver, Amy Handlin, Valerie Vainieri Huttle and Annette Quijano to combat abuse and fraud against the elderly and disabled in New Jersey.
The bipartisan legislation approved today is the result of ongoing discussions between former Speaker Oliver, Deputy Republican Leader Handlin and more than a dozen prominent stakeholder agencies and corporations from throughout the state. The bills are a legislative response to help senior citizens avoid being swindled by unscrupulous scammers.
Quijano, Wisniewski, Jimenez & Mukherji Bill to Allow Drivers to Indicate Drug Allergies on Driver's Licenses Gains Panel ApprovalLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Annette Quijano, John Wisniewski, Angelica Jimenez and Raj Mukherji to give drivers the option to denote drug allergies on their driver's licenses was advanced Monday by an Assembly panel.
"Driver's licenses are the most likely place to look for vital information," said Quijano (D-Union). "From an identification card, you can learn whether a person is an organ donor or even wears glasses. It makes sense for it to include information that could save a life in an emergency."
Tucker, Vainieri Huttle, Quijano, Wimberly & Mosquera Bill Criminalizing ‘Upskirting’ Advances
Measure Cracking Down on Illegally Photographing Under Someone's Clothing also Strengthens New Jersey's Right to Privacy StatuteLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Cleopatra G. Tucker, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Annette Quijano, Benjie Wimberly and Gabriela Mosquera to criminalize the act of secretly photographing or recording under a person's clothing - commonly referred to as "upskirting" gained approval from an Assembly panel on Monday.
"With today's level of technology, most people with cell phones are essentially walking around with an Internet linked video camera in their pocket at all times," said Tucker (D-Essex). "This can lead certain people to assume it is acceptable to 'document' whatever they choose, even if it violates someone else's privacy. We are here today to say that should not, cannot and will not be the case in New Jersey."
