Armato, Lampitt & Pintor Marin Bill to Expand Suicide Prevention Training for School Employees Clears Assembly Panel

Aiming to reduce teen suicide in New Jersey, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats John Armato, Pamela Lampitt and Eliana Pintor Marin to expand suicide prevention, awareness and response training for school district personnel was approved Thursday by the Assembly Education Committee.

"Teen suicide is the third-leading cause of death among young people ages 15 to 24, exceeded only by homicide and accidents," said Armato (D-Atlantic). "It's essential that we ensure the teachers and school staff who interact with students on a daily basis are trained to identify troubling scenarios and respond appropriately."

Lampitt Statement on Prolonged Closure of Atlantic City Rail Line

In response to the continued closure of the Atlantic City Rail Line, Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt released the following statement:

"The Atlantic City Rail Line runs through the heart of South Jersey, providing a vital link between Atlantic City and Philadelphia," said Lampitt (D-Camden, Burlington). "Thousands of commuters, with many residents from my district accessing the train line via the Cherry Hill station, depend on it to get to and from work or school each day. It's those daily riders who were hurt the most when the line closed in September for the installation of positive train control equipment. But now that the installation is complete, it's unclear what's stopping NJ Transit from getting the trains back up and running."

Assembly Labor Committee Approves Employee Fair Wage Bills

Bills sponsored by Assembly Democrats Joann Downey, Pamela Lampitt, Gary Schaer, Eric Houghtaling, Daniel Benson, Wayne DeAngelo and Gordon Johnson

Continuing to make strides in protecting and promoting fair wages for employees in New Jersey, the Assembly Labor Committee approved a package of bills Thursday that would ensure working-and middle-class families are receiving the pay they deserve.

“In an ideal world, your gender would not influence how much you earn at work. But that’s not the world we live in,” said Downey (D-Monmouth). “This provides a means of narrowing the wage gap by making it less likely for employers to unintentionally perpetuate the gap by basing salary offers for new hires on their previous salary, which has a disproportionate impact on female hires.”

Lampitt Bill to Give High School Students Path to Graduation after PARCC Ruling Clears Assembly Panel

To ensure current high school juniors and seniors are able to graduate in the wake of a recent Superior Court ruling striking down the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test, legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt to provide students a clear path to graduation was approved Thursday by the Assembly Education Committee.

"When the court struck down the PARCC math and language arts tests as end-of-course exams for graduation, nearly 170,000 high school seniors and juniors who had already taken the tests were left wondering if they would still meet the requirements to graduate," said Lampitt (D-Camden, Burlington). "This bill will take those students out of limbo and set them on a course to graduate."

Jasey, Caputo, Lampitt, Moriarty & Wimberly Bill to Create Task Force to Study Full-Day Kindergarten Clears Assembly Panel

Aiming to ensure children in New Jersey receive high quality education from their earliest days in school, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Mila Jasey, Ralph Caputo, Pamela Lampitt, Paul Moriarty, and Benjie Wimberly to create a task force to evaluate establishing and implementing full-day kindergarten programs across the state was approved Thursday by the Assembly Education Committee.

"Research demonstrates that students who attend full-day kindergarten programs are better prepared for school than children enrolled in half-day sessions," said Jasey (D-Essex, Morris). "But sometimes, full-day programs are not available in a child's school district. This task force will help us understand how to implement full-day kindergarten in all districts to make sure children have equal access to high quality programs."
