State Sen. Andy Ciesla and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and James Holzapfel, all R-Ocean and Monmouth, issued the following statement regarding the announcement today from the Christie administration that Governor Christie is going to restore funding for the PAAD and Senior Gold prescription drug assistance programs in the Fiscal Year 2011 budget as a result of increases in rebate collections from drug manufacturers, higher utilization of generic drugs, expanded eligibility for enrollment in Medicare Part D’s Low Income Subsidy program and manufacturer discounts in Medicare part D “donut hole”:

“For those who claim Governor Christie is making senior citizens bear more than their share of sacrifice, this announcement today proves quite the contrary,” said Ciesla. “All the Democrats have offered are more tax increases which will further damage our economy and job creation.

Legislation Prompted by Tragic Murder of 30-Year-Old Social Worker

Prompted by the murder of a 30-year-old Ocean County social worker, 10th District legislators, Senator Andy Ciesla and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Jim Holzapfel, have introduced legislation to provide further protection against those who repeatedly commit acts of domestic violence.

The bill, S-1331/A-1295, would prevent defendants who are arrested a second or subsequent time for contempt of a domestic violence restraining order from being released on bail while awaiting trial. Instead, in these cases a Superior Court judge would hold an emergent hearing and make a final disposition of the charge within 72 hours of the arrest. The bill also provides that the municipal court would not have jurisdiction in these matters.
