Vainieri Huttle, Jones, Mukherji, Wimberly & Chiaravalloti Bill to Help Residents at Risk of Homelessness Clears Assembly Committee

As a means of preventing homelessness in the state, a bill to provide temporary rental assistance to individuals facing eviction due to temporary conditions, such as loss of employment, temporary unemployment, and underemployment, recently cleared the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee. The measure is sponsored by Assembly Democrats Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Patricia Egan Jones, Raj Mukherji, Benjie Wimberly and Nicholas Chiaravalloti.

"Many people are one emergency away from hitting financial rock bottom," said Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen). "By providing funding for eligible individuals to stay in their homes, the state can prevent unnecessary homelessness, maintain the family unit, and be fiscally responsible."

Quijano, Benson, Chiaravalloti Bill to Create New Crime for Operating a Drone Equipped with a Weapon Clears Assembly Panel

Armed drones can now be successfully built by civilians. In an effort to deter the construction and flying of weapon-equipped drones, a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Annette Quijano, Daniel Benson and Nicholas Chiaravalloti that would create a fourth degree crime was approved today by the Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee.

In 2015, several news outlets reported that an 18-year-old college sophomore built what was thought to be among the first armed civilian drones, and filmed the device flying on his family's property in Connecticut.

"The armed drone was a wake-up call for law enforcement," said Quijano (D-Union), the committee's chairperson. "Despite serious concerns for public safety, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told 'CBS This Morning' there appeared to be nothing illegal about it. That statement was a wake-up call for the legislature."
