Andrzejczak, Mazzeo, Mukherji & Wilson Bill to Support Disabled Veteran Business Owners Gains Final Legislative ApprovalLegislation sponsored by Assemblymen Bob Andrzejczak, Vince Mazzeo, Raj Mukherji and Whip Wilson to create a state contract set-aside program for businesses owned and operated by disabled veterans now heads to the governor's desk, having received unanimous approval from both houses of the legislature.
"Technical and leadership skills acquired through military service can easily translate into successful entrepreneurship," said Andrzejczak (D-Cape May/Atlantic/Cumberland), who was wounded in Iraq while serving with the U.S. Army. "Disabled veteran-owned businesses have made significant contributions to New Jersey's economy. This legislation would continue to support our disabled veterans who aim to start or grow their businesses."
Johnson, Mainor, Wilson & Wimberly Bill to Expand Access to DNA Testing & Exonerate the Wrongfully Convicted Gains Final Legislative ApprovalLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Gordon Johnson, Charles Mainor, Whip Wilson and Benjie Wimberly to help clear the wrongfully convicted by allowing anyone convicted of a crime to request DNA testing gained final legislative approval on Monday.
"Thanks to DNA testing, we have seen a number of individuals exonerated after years, sometimes decades, spent behind bars for crimes they did not commit," said Johnson (D-Bergen). "Sadly, under current state law, an innocent person who is on probation or parole does not have the same access to the technology that can help clear their name and restore their dignity. This bill would open access to DNA testing to these individuals so they can stop living under the shadow of guilt and finally be free."
Mazzeo, Eustace, Johnson, Wilson & Moriarty Bill to Establish Scholarship Fund for Families of Soldiers Lost, Missing & Disabled in Action Heads to Gov's DeskBipartisan legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Vincent Mazzeo, Tim Eustace, Gordon Johnson, Whip Wilson and Paul Moriarty to provide scholarships to the children of military personnel who have died, become permanently disabled or are missing in action received final legislative approval Monday and now heads to the governor's desk.
"Military families are our nation's real unsung heroes," said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). "We know that freedom isn't free and it's only fitting that we honor the sacrifices of those who have worn the uniform by helping their children and spouses attain their highest educational goals."
