“If a person is banned from contracting with the federal government due to fraudulent activity, then they shouldn’t be allowed to profit with public dollars from New Jersey taxpayers,” said Senator Steven Oroho (R- Sussex, Warren, Morris). “Closing this loophole will prevent bad actors from being able to take advantage, saving New Jersey time, money, and headaches. I am pleased to see that this commonsense taxpayer protection is now law.”

Three legislative initiatives sponsored by Senator Steven Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Morris) were recently signed into law by the Governor.

The first new law, S-538, extends tax-exemption eligibility for low-income senior housing projects. The legislation was drafted to address a situation at Knoll Heights Village, an age-restricted community in Sparta, as well as other projects across the state.

“This law will help age-restricted communities control costs while providing residents with the quality of life they deserve,” said Oroho. “We shouldn’t cut off assistance to low-income senior communities as soon as they pay off their mortgage. That not only disincentives facilities from paying off their debt early, but it could potentially force these communities to close their doors once the support stops. Through extending their tax-exemption eligibility, these facilities will have a chance to take money that would otherwise go toward paying taxes and use it for expenses that are crucial to their continued operation.”

“People should understand that the expansion of the paid family leave and temporary disability programs the administration has touted are anything but free,” said Oroho (R-24). “They come at a significant cost, and taxpayers are left holding the bag. Some New Jerseyans will pay nearly $500 more this year. The governor never told people it would cost that much.”

Statement from Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblymen Parker Space and Hal Wirths on recent anti-Semitic attacks:

Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblymen Parker Space and Hal Wirths condemned recent anti-Semitic attacks as despicable and barbaric.

 An assault on any member of our community is an assault on us all. We have witnessed despicable acts of racist and anti-Semitic barbarism as of late in places like Monsey, NY and Jersey City and unfortunately seen anti-Semitic vandalism closer to home.  Every American of all backgrounds should condemn this type of criminal behavior – not only because of the loss of innocent human life but because the perpetrators of these violent actions degrade and debase a religion and attack the spiritual soul of our communities.
