(TRENTON) – Assembly Transportation Chairman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) released the following statement on Thursday on a press release sent earlier Thursday by Assemblyman Robert Schroeder (R-Bergen):
“It’s amazing how fast Assemblyman Schroeder has shown himself to be an ineffective legislator.
“He is unable to build a consensus nor understand the issues and is way too interested in self-glorifying press releases than he is on solving problems.
“As a matter of fact, we serve on a the same committee together and he didn’t even have the courage to mention this to me today.
“It’s a shame that he is more obsessed with building hysteria than protecting teen drivers.
“If he was truly interested in public policy, then he would understand that the teen driver laws were the result of intensive bipartisan study and embraced in a bipartisan fashion, including by Republican leaders.
“As the father of 3 daughters – and a teen driver – I view these bills as protecting my children, as well as every other teen driver.
“I sincerely hope Assemblyman Schroeder learns that panic-stricken press releases do not make for effective legislation.”
