TRENTON â Legislation sponsored by Senators Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) and Fred Madden (D-Gloucester/Camden) to aid the families of fallen police officers, firefighters, emergency medical responders and correctional officers by providing assistance to help cover funeral costs was approved today by Senate Law and Public Safety Committee.
TRENTON â Legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Gilbert L. âWhipâ Wilson to improve access to fresh produce for residents living in as few as one selected low-income community with little or no supermarkets â known as a âfood desertâ â was signed into law yesterday.
The bill (A-3688/S-2728) authorizes the Department of Agriculture to establish a mobile farmersâ market pilot program to be conducted in one or more municipalities to be determined by the Secretary of Agriculture in which residents are unable to obtain adequate access to nutritious foods. The municipality must then agree to participate in the program. Under the pilot program, state-authorized vendors will transport fresh fruits and vegetables into the state-designated community or communities where the produce is to be sold. Vendors will be encouraged to accept government-issued low-income food vouchers as payment, but will be allowed to accept any form of payment at their discretion.
