Legislative UpdateI’d like to share some of the legislation I am working on: 

A4627– Establishes Digital Divide Solutions Grant Program in DOE to assist public schools in purchase of online instruction equipment. Remote learning has exacerbated disparities in access to technology in some communities. An education is the best way to lift one out of poverty, but without the proper technological equipment, impoverished students cannot get the education they need in these times of remote learning. That is why we must take action and work to close this digital divide. 

A4334– “Transparency in Government Act;” provides for establishment of a State public finance website and requires certain public entities receiving State funds to establish similar website. Transparency in government is required for our democracy to function properly. That is why I believe we need to take measures to foster good governance and hold our officials accountable. ACR191-“Rainy Day Fund;” Amend the Constitution to require deposit of excess revenue in Surplus Revenue Fund and restricts appropriations there from. We learned the hard way that New Jersey was not prepared for an emergency of this magnitude. It is time we practice responsible governing and stop borrowing on the backs of taxpayers.
Good Deed of the Month
Amanda Austin-Young Modale of Bernardsville is taking matters into her own hands to help the community.
