"The overall premise of this bill is keeping discarded drugs out of the wrong hands," said Assemblyman Armato (D-Atlantic). "Be it the hands of children or those struggling to avoid temptation, this bill will inform patients on ways to help prevent this from happening."

Jasey & Zwicker Bill to Modernize State Documents to be Inclusive of Gender Diversity Clears Assembly Panel

To respect gender and sexual identities of all New Jersey residents, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Mila Jasey and Andrew Zwicker to remove blanks and forms requesting gender and sexual orientation information when such data is not relevant was approved Thursday by the Assembly Human Services Committee.

"It's important that we foster a respectful, inclusive environment for our LGBTQ community in New Jersey," said Jasey (D-Essex, Morris). "In most cases, questions about sexual identity and gender on registration forms are simply unnecessary. This legislation would remove those questions, except where medically necessary, to help us embrace gender diversity in our state."
