The State Senate today passed legislation (S-1493/A-1944) sponsored by Senator Christopher J. Connors and co-sponsored by Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove that would make various changes to membership requirements of the Veterans’ Services Council.

“The changes provided for under this legislation to the Veterans’ Services Council were recommended by members of the Council,” stated Senator Connors, a member of the Senate Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “After considering testimony and reviewing the provisions of the legislation over the course of two Legislative Sessions, I am fully confident the changes will allow for the Council to operate more effectively in carrying out its core mission, which includes formulating comprehensive policies for the coordination of all services for war veterans and their dependents.”

The female Republican members of the State Senate and General Assembly would like to offer the following statement of support for Governor Christie’s New Jersey Supreme Court nominee, Anne Patterson:

“New Jersey can be proud of its record on women in government. In fact, in 1925, New Jersey was the sixth State in the nation to elect a woman to represent them in the U.S. Congress.

“In that spirit, as female elected-officials, we would like to voice our support for the Senate to hold confirmation hearings for Anne Patterson as a nominee to the New Jersey Supreme Court. If confirmed by the Senate, Ms. Patterson’s appointment to the court would mean that for the first time in New Jersey history, we would have a majority of women on the State Supreme Court. New Jersey would become only the fifth State in the nation to have such a balance.
