Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Jim Beach, Senator Dawn Addiego, Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Assemblyman Troy Singleton, Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, officials running the Vets4Warriors program at Rutgers and the Burlington County Military Affairs Committee met on Wednesday to highlight the use of $8 million in special funding added to the state budget for veterans’ services, including money that will keep the Vets4Warriors program operating.

The Legislature and the governor worked together to fund the suicide prevention program operated by Rutgers when federal government announced it was going to discontinue its support by Friday. The special funding provides the money needed to keep Vets4Warriors operating and for other veterans’ services, including health care.

“For veterans struggling with the return to civilian life, having a strong and accessible peer support network can be the difference between life and death,” said Senator Addiego. “The Vets4Warriors program ensures that our returning heroes are never alone in their times of need.”

Senator Dawn Addiego has signed on as a co-prime sponsor of a resolution (SCR-175) opposing the New Jersey Fish and Game Council’s proposal to allow the use of enclosed foothold traps, as the new policy is in violation of the plain language and legislative intent of a 1984 New Jersey law banning animal steel-jaw leghold traps and similar types.

“These traps can snare household pets as well as local wildlife, causing serious injury, trauma and death,” said Senator Addiego. “The 1984 legislation is absolute and unambiguous in its intention to protect animals languishing in this type of trap.”

The proposal consisted of an accelerated schedule that is two months shorter than that proposed by the BPU, significantly cutting back on time for public participation in the process. The proposal was defeated in favor of the BPU’s proposed schedule, in a decision handed down by the board yesterday afternoon.

“This is the first step in what will hopefully be a transparent process that is open to public scrutiny,” said Senator Dawn Addiego. “The BPU has rightfully sided with the public and cast aside this egregious attempt to circumvent what is supposed to be an open and fair proceeding.”
