TRENTON – 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 the full Senate.

“New Jersey’s public safety officers put their lives on the line every day in an effort to keep the residents of this state safe,” said Senator Norcross. “Unfortunately, there are times when these courageous men and women pay the ultimate sacrifice. We owe it to these heroes and their families to honor their tremendous contribution to this state, and this bill allows us to do so.”

SENATOR DONALD NORCROSS STATEMENT ON SDA ANNOUNCEMENT OF 2012 EMERGENT PROJECTS PROGRAM

(CAMDEN) – Senator Donald Norcross released the following statement in response to this morning’s announcement by the Schools Development Authority (SDA) identifying emergent projects poised to advance in 2012. Of the seventy-six projects listed, six schools in Camden City were named, as well as two projects at one Gloucester City elementary school.

“It is long overdue that the SDA addresses the safety issues in so many of our public schools, and this announcement must be followed by action. As the Chairman of School Facilities and Construction for the Joint Committee on the Public Schools, I understand the importance of these repairs in Camden and Gloucester City. These students have been attending class in crumbling buildings for far too long. This is only an intermediate step toward the SDA’s mandate of providing clean and healthy schools for the children of New Jersey.”
