Would Allow Proceeds Received from Games of Chance to Support Veterans’ Organization

Legislation sponsored by Senators Kip Bateman (R-16) and Dawn Marie Addiego (R-8) giving veterans’ organization more flexibility to manage their costs has been approved by the New Jersey Senate. The measures, S-87 and SCR-11, would allow those organizations to use the net proceeds from games of chance to support their organizations financially.

“Many non-profits, including organizations that serve our veterans, have struggled financially in recent years as donors facing economic hardships of their own haven’t been able to give as much,” said Bateman. “The legislation and constitutional amendment that we have proposed would provide additional financial flexibility to veterans’ groups by allowing them to tap a new stream of revenues to help pay their bills.”

The New Jersey Senate approved today a resolution honoring Steve Sabol, sponsored by Senators Diane Allen and Dawn Marie Addiego, both R-Burlington, and supported by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

“Steve Sabol is one of New Jersey’s most innovative entrepreneurs and his creativity has revolutionized both sports and documentary cinematography around the world,” Allen said. “He has made Mount Laurel the home of America’s favorite sport, having created a model business employing hundreds of people and boasting the world’s largest sports film library. He showed us the passion of the game — and made it our passion, too.”

“With ingenuity and grace, Steve Sabol has humanized America’s favorite sport bringing people inside the hearts and minds of their football heroes,” added Addiego. “Continuing Steve Sabol’s passion, NFL Films will continue to make Burlington County proud, as it chronicles the season of New Jersey’s Super Bowl.”

Legislation sponsored by Senator Dawn Marie Addiego holding colleges and universities that donate food to charitable organizations harmless from civil liability has been signed into law by Governor Chris Christie.

“Even food that is donated to the needy with the best of intentions can spoil or be contaminated in some way, and the donor very likely would have no idea,” said Addiego (R- Burlington/Atlantic/Camden). “Student groups at colleges and universities are getting more active in combating hunger in their communities as attention is increasingly drawn to the issue. These students and institutions should not have to suffer through a legal drama because, in the process of trying to do good, the beneficiary accidentally became sick. Such cases are accidents not worthy of blame and punitive damages.”
