Assembly Democratic Bill to Promote Equal Pay for Women Approved by Assembly

Bill Sponsored by Downey, Lampitt, Schaer, Houghtaling, Benson, Singleton, Muoio & DeAngelo
Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Joann Downey, Pamela Lampitt, Gary Schaer, Eric Houghtaling, Dan Benson, Troy Singleton, Elizabeth Maher Muoio and Wayne DeAngelo to promote equal pay for women was approved Monday by the full Assembly.

"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."

"Antwan's tragic death was a painful incident that underscores what the data on Route 130 has shown for years. Whether they're going to school or to get a slice of pizza with friends, our kids are in danger every time they cross this roadway," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "This measure will not only be impactful in the community of Burlington, but in other areas across the state where children face a similar hazard near their schools."

Singleton & Wimberly Bill to Improve Enforcement of Drivers Who Illegally Pass School Buses Clears Assembly Panel

Legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Troy Singleton (D-Burlington) and Benjie Wimberly (D-Bergen/Passaic) to help deter drivers who illegally pass school buses that are stopped to pick up or drop off students was approved Thursday by an Assembly panel.

"We have all at some point witnessed an impatient driver rush past a school bus that was stopped to pick up or drop off a child. These drivers are not only breaking the law, they are endangering the lives of these children," said Singleton. "Allowing districts to install monitoring systems in buses can help deter this reckless conduct by capturing these infractions on video."

DeAngelo, Giblin & Singleton Bill to Establish Licensure Procedures for Pool and Spa Service Contractors; Creates 7-Member Advisory Committee Advances in Senate

(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Wayne DeAngelo, Thomas Giblin and Troy Singleton to put in place safety procedures and trade guidelines for pool and spa contractors in New Jersey cleared the Senate Commerce Committee on Thursday.

"As it stands now, it is too easy for an individual to claim they are certified and knowledgeable in pool and spa contracting without actually having completed certification," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer, Middlesex). "Just as plumbing and electrical contractors, pool and spa contractors should have to meet certain certification requirements and safety guidelines."
