Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Adam Taliaferro, Bob Andrzejczak, Pamela Lampitt, Gabriela Mosquera and Jamel Holley to establish the "Nourishing Young Minds Initiative Fund" is now law.

"Establishing a more stable fund for school nutrition programs is exactly what is needed for their survival," said Taliaferro (D-Salem/Cumberland/Gloucester). "Without these programs, many children in the state would go without having at least one nutritional meal a day. Nutritional programs are a great service to our communities and deserve a stable funding mechanism in place to ensure they will be around for future generations."

Repeal of Previous State Law Ends 'Modern-Day Debtors' Prison' in New Jersey

Legislation Assembly Majority Leader Louis D. Greenwald and Assembly Democrats Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Gary S. Schaer, Raj Mukherji, Jamel Holley, Gabriela Mosquera, Elizabeth Muoio, Shavonda Sumter and Vince Mazzeo sponsored to rescind a state law that jeopardized the careers of professionals who have overwhelming student debt was signed by the governor on Friday.

"If someone earned a license to practice a profession, their performance should be the sole factor that affects their ability to retain that license," said Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington). "Using a professional license as a bargaining chip when someone cannot pay his or her student loans is not only wrong but nonsensical. There is no logic in removing a borrower's ability to pay back a loan as a punishment for inability to pay in the first place."

"Whether it's the tax cuts to the top 2% as proposed in the first two TrumpCare proposals, or the tax cuts to pharmaceutical and insurance companies in the latest version, seniors, disabled, veterans, those with pre-existing conditions and low income families should not be deprived of health care coverage and our hospitals and the state budget will not also suffer the consequences," Assemblyman Holley and Senator Lesniak said in the correspondence. "Hundreds of thousands of our constituents are living in fear day to day as President Trump and Congress continue to threaten their ability to live in peace knowing they have nothing to fear..."
