The 12th District legislators are extremely pleased to announce that the proposed cuts to the State’s programs aiding New Jersey’s seniors and disabled citizens have been restored.

One of many difficult decisions that Governor Christie was forced to make in order to close the $11 billion budget gap for the FY 2011 State Budget was to put in place a $310 deductable for Senior Gold and PAAD (the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled) program and increasing co-pays for brand name drugs from $7 to $15.

The female Republican members of the State Senate and General Assembly would like to offer the following statement of support for Governor Christie’s New Jersey Supreme Court nominee, Anne Patterson:

“New Jersey can be proud of its record on women in government. In fact, in 1925, New Jersey was the sixth State in the nation to elect a woman to represent them in the U.S. Congress.

“In that spirit, as female elected-officials, we would like to voice our support for the Senate to hold confirmation hearings for Anne Patterson as a nominee to the New Jersey Supreme Court. If confirmed by the Senate, Ms. Patterson’s appointment to the court would mean that for the first time in New Jersey history, we would have a majority of women on the State Supreme Court. New Jersey would become only the fifth State in the nation to have such a balance.

A bill sponsored by Senator Jennifer Beck that creates the first 71-day race meet in the nation for Monmouth Park Racetrack was voted out of the Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism and Historic Preservation Committee today.

“Horseracing is a historic pastime of New Jerseyans,” said Beck, “but in recent years gaming and racing competition outside the State has been growing. By decreasing the number of racing days, the purse size increase will attract high quality horses to race at Monmouth Park. This is an exciting time for New Jersey citizens, as this new meet structure is drawing national and international attention. The implementation of this bill will act as a real incentive for people to come out and enjoy Monmouth Park.”
