Assembly Approves Burzichelli, Caputo & Mazzeo Bill to Permit Lottery Ticket DeliveryLegislation sponsored by Assemblymen John Burzichelli, Ralph Caputo and Vince Mazzeo to make it easier for New Jersey residents to obtain lottery tickets was approved 54-20-4 by the full Assembly last week.
The bill (A-4018) would require the New Jersey Lottery Commission to authorize the operation of lottery courier services, allowing delivery companies to bring lottery tickets directly to customers. Courier services would be required to register with, and receive authorization from, the State Lottery Commission prior to delivering tickets.
Fuentes, Johnson, Burzichelli, Pintor Marin & Mosquera Bill to Entice Private Entities to Fund Health Care Initiatives Gains Final Legislative ApprovalLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Angel Fuentes, Gordon Johnson, John Burzichelli, Eliana Pintor Marin and Gabriela Mosquera to encourage private investment in preventive and early intervention health care to reduce public costs gained final legislative approval on Thursday.
"Providing adequate healthcare to our neediest residents can be costly to service providers, governments and residents," said Fuentes (D-Camden/Gloucester). "We cannot continue to do things the old way with limited resources and expect different results. We need to be innovative. This bill seeks to reduce healthcare costs in the long run while increasing the wellness of our residents without raising taxes. This is a new way of looking at accomplishing our goals."
