Cory Booker will be sworn in as a U.S. Senator on Halloween, October 31, according to Associated Press reports.
New Jersey’s senior Senator will, by tradition, escort Booker into the Senate Chamber. Vice President Joe Biden, the Constitutional President of the Senate, will swear Booker in.
Booker told the Wall Street Journal that reforming federal narcotics laws is on the top of his list for goals to accomplish in the final 15 months of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg’s term that he was elected to complete last week. Booker said he plans to reach across the aisle and work with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to eliminate mandatory minimum sentencing laws for non-violent drug offenders.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Cory Booker | Tags: Cory Booker, Drug Laws, Halloween, U.S. Senate | 5 Comments »
“I’ve taken this action to minimize additional risks to lives and the public safety as we begin the process of rebuilding and recovering from Hurricane Sandy,”said Governor Christie. “In too many communities in our state, the damage and losses from this storm are still being sorted out, and dangerous conditions abound even as our emergency management and response officials continue their work. As Governor, it is my responsibility to use all available resources of the state government to protect against the emergency created by Hurricane Sandy – postponing Halloween celebrations by five days is a commonsense and necessary step to accomplish that.”
The damage sustained from Hurricane Sandy poses a continued threat to public safety in communities across New Jersey due to flooding, fallen trees, downed power lines, roadway closures, and disruptions in electrical service, making it unsafe and imprudent to participate in traditional celebrations, such as trick-or-treat walks. Local officials are advised to notify and encourage their communities and residents to delay any planned celebrations until Monday.Posted: October 31st, 2012 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: Hurricane Sandy | Tags: Halloween, Hurricane Sandy | Comments Off on Halloween is officially postponed.
