Senator Declan O’Scanlon today challenged New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to stand on line to register at vehicle at MVC.
Murphy has for weeks been sitting on legislation passed by the Senate and the Assembly that would ease the congestion and the long, unhealthy lines at MVC facilities.
O’Scanlon and his district partner, Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, believe that Murphy would immediately sign the legislation if he appreciated the suffering that he and MVC Commissioner Sue Fulton are putting New Jersey drivers through.
Senator Declan O’Scanlon, Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, and Assemblyman Gerry Scharfenberger (R-Monmouth) called on the Murphy administration to allow for a limited reopening of small gift shops and jewelry stores in advance of Mother’s Day.
District 13 legislators, Senator Declan O’Scanlon and Assembly Members Serena DiMaso and Gerry Scharfenberger want Governor Murphy to amend the types of businesses allowed to operate during the COVID-19 shutdown to include gun dealers, car dealers and computer repair shops.
Senator Declan O’Scanlon and his district mates in LD 13, Assembly Members Serena DiMaso and Gerry Scharfenberger are urging NJ residents not to rush to the PNC Art Center for COVID-19 testing on Monday unless they would be seeking medical treatment under normal circumstances.
“We are happy to see how many entities came together quickly to get this testing site online for Monday, however, we want to prevent the sorts of lines we saw today at Bergen’s testing site and we want to avoid the use of precious resources – testing kits, personal protective equipment, and human resources,” said O’Scanlon. “The lines are likely to be huge, and we have to make sure that the folks we are testing are those that really need it. If you show up without checking the news and verifying that you qualify to be tested, you could wait in line for hours only to be turned away. If you have to exaggerate your symptoms to qualify, don’t do that!” Read the rest of this entry »
