Assemblyman Jim Holzapfel of the 10th Legislative District has introduced legislation in an effort to save the Barnegat Bay. The bill known as the “Save Barnegat Bay Act” would establish the “Save Barnegat Bay Fund” to support and help protect, preserve and remediate the Barnegat Bay estuary and its watershed.

The Save Barnegat Bay Fund is a special non-lapsing fund in the Department of Treasury which would be supported through four separate monetary collections. Donations would come from a portion of the sales tax on lawn fertilizer, the creation of the Save Barnegat Bay license plate, donations from the renewal of a boating license and $1 from each beach badge fee collected anywhere in the State will be donated to the fund.

State Sen. Andy Ciesla and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and James Holzapfel, all R-Ocean and Monmouth, issued the following statement regarding the announcement today from the Christie administration that Governor Christie is going to restore funding for the PAAD and Senior Gold prescription drug assistance programs in the Fiscal Year 2011 budget as a result of increases in rebate collections from drug manufacturers, higher utilization of generic drugs, expanded eligibility for enrollment in Medicare Part D’s Low Income Subsidy program and manufacturer discounts in Medicare part D “donut hole”:

“For those who claim Governor Christie is making senior citizens bear more than their share of sacrifice, this announcement today proves quite the contrary,” said Ciesla. “All the Democrats have offered are more tax increases which will further damage our economy and job creation. Governor Christie, on the other hand, is restoring funding to programs for seniors in need through responsible, viable means that does not increase the State budget one cent.”

Legislation Prompted by Tragic Murder of 30-Year-Old Social Worker

Prompted by the murder of a 30-year-old Ocean County social worker, 10th District legislators, Senator Andy Ciesla and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Jim Holzapfel, have introduced legislation to provide further protection against those who repeatedly commit acts of domestic violence.

The bill, S-1331/A-1295, would prevent defendants who are arrested a second or subsequent time for contempt of a domestic violence restraining order from being released on bail while awaiting trial. Instead, in these cases a Superior Court judge would hold an emergent hearing and make a final disposition of the charge within 72 hours of the arrest. The bill also provides that the municipal court would not have jurisdiction in these matters.
