Assembly OK's Riley, DeAngelo & Vainieri Huttle Bill to Require Inspection Reports for Residential Health Care Facilities, Boarding Homes & Emergency Shelters be Posted OnlineThe Assembly on Monday approved legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Celeste Riley, Wayne DeAngelo and Valerie Vainieri Huttle requiring the Department of Community Affairs to post inspection reports for residential health care facilities, boarding homes, and emergency shelters for the homeless on its website.
"Public information should be made readily available, especially when dealing with facilities that provide health care and housing," said Riley (D-Cumberland/Gloucester/Salem). "This is a simple and practical way to keep residents and their families informed about the conditions in the facility. It also serves as an incentive for facilities to make sure they are complying with mandated standards."
Singleton, Vainieri Huttle, Benson, Conaway, Garcia, Riley, Mosquera & Caputo Legislation to Promote Donations to ALS Association Becomes Law(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Daniel R. Benson, Herb Conaway Jr., Carmelo Garcia, Celeste Riley, Gabriela Mosquera and Ralph Caputo to make it easier for taxpayers to donate to the ALS Association was signed into law today.
The new law (A-3290) will require gross income tax returns to include a provision to allow taxpayers to make voluntary donations to the Greater Philadelphia and Greater New York Chapters of the ALS Association for taxable years beginning on or after the date of enactment. It establishes the ALS Association Support Fund as a depository for the donations.
"The mission of the ALS Association is to lead the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy, while also empowering people with Lou Gehrig's Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support through a nationwide network of chapters," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "Making it easier for New Jerseyans to support this cause is the right thing to do."
