Senator James W. Holzapfel (R-10) and Senator Robert Singer (R-30) have submitted legislation authorizing investment of $8 billion over five years in transportation infrastructure funding pursuant to Governor Christie’s Transportation Capital Program.

“The Governor has come up with a plan that is fiscally responsible, invests in our infrastructure, and accepts the reality that taxpayers cannot afford higher gas taxes,” said Holzapfel. “This plan meets the emergent needs of New Jersey’s transportation system while reducing the reliance on borrowing that nearly bankrupted the Transportation Trust Fund under Governor Corzine.”

Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Greg McGuckin and Dave Wolfe of the 10th Legislative District are calling on the State of New Jersey to approve cardiac surgery services at Community Medical Center in Toms River.

“The State of New Jersey has an obligation to swiftly approve cardiac surgery at Community Medical Center to meet the need of Ocean County residents,” said Senator Holzapfel. “The elderly in our community are being jeopardized by unnecessary delays and risks associated with traveling far from home to an out of county hospital.

Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin, representing New Jersey’s 10th District, have introduced a bill which would provide an income tax credit for tolls paid on state roads via E-ZPass. Under the bill, a taxpayer whose toll expenses exceed $1,000 per year would be eligible for a $1000 credit on their New Jersey income taxes.

“With this bill we are trying to put money back into the wallets of commuters who have seen relentless toll increases,” said Senator Holzapfel. “By providing commuters with a means to offset a portion of their commuting costs, our bill recognizes that these taxpayers are paying more than their fair share for transportation and economic development projects, while encouraging commuters to use E-Zpass.”

The Legislators of the 10th District, Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin have introduced the “Healthy Puppies and Kittens Assurance Act” which establishes requirements and places strict regulations on pet stores who sell animals from puppy and kitten mill breeders.

“By requiring registration of breeders, providing purchasers with information about their future pet and imposing heavy penalties on violators, individuals and pet shops will be encouraged to purchase their cat or dog from a reputable breeder,” said Senator Holzapfel. “This would eliminate the market for selling cats or dogs from puppy mills with poor and unhealthy conditions.”

Senator Jim Holzapfel (R-10), a member of the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee, announced his support for Governor Chris Christie’s proposal to modify the right to bail through an amendment to the New Jersey Constitution. Holzapfel, a former county prosecutor, has long supported reforms to prevent violent criminals from having the opportunity to continue preying on the public.

“Anyone who has worked in law enforcement or the courts knows that we have a virtual revolving door for violent offenders who are arrested, charged and released back to the streets where they often commit more crimes before they reach trial,” said Holzapfel. “Governor Christie is 100 percent right that we need to provide judges the discretion to deny bail to those who are most likely to threaten public safety before trial.”
