Allen, Kean, & Oroho Praise Senate Approval of Jessica Lunsford Act; Call for Speedy Assembly Action
The New Jersey Senate made history today with its passage of S-380, “The Jessica Lunsford Act”, more than seven years after it was first introduced in the wake of the brutal rape and murder of Florida 9 year old Jessica Lunsford.
Sponsored by Senators Diane Allen, Tom Kean, Jr., and Steve Oroho, the legislation mandates minimum sentencing of 25 years to life for the aggravated sexual assault of a child under 13, and increases penalties for persons convicted of harboring a sex offender.
Senators Kevin O’Toole and Diane Allen authored the following op-ed published in The Record on Oct. 4, calling for the State Legislature’s immediate passage of their bill to ban employers from obtaining access personal accounts, communications, photos and profiles:
“It’s no secret that technology has advanced beyond the scope of certain state laws. In an egregious example, New Jersey’s workforce is vulnerable to invasions of privacy.
Employers in New Jersey can disqualify job candidates who deny an interviewer access to their private online accounts, which are often home to personal photo albums, political affiliations, religious practices, sexual preferences and communications with family and friends.
If even the most suitable job applicants do not agree to such demands, it could cost them employment, income and health benefits.
Senator Diane Allen today welcomed the award of a $24,850 grant to Burlington City.
The award, part of the New Jersey Certified Local Government (CLG) program, will aid the city’s numerous historic preservation initiatives. It is funded by federal dollars contributed to the state’s Historic Preservation Fund (HPF).
Allen Legislation Preserving Civil Service Priority for Guard Members Called to Active Duty Signed Into Law
Legislation sponsored by Senator Diane Allen that prevents civil service applicants called to active national guard duty from losing their place on hiring lists has been signed into law by Governor Christie.
S-1879 (Norcross/Allen) allows Guard members who leave for active federal military duty to regain a similar spot on up to two open competitive civil service hiring lists upon their return from service.
The Senate Labor Committee has moved bipartisan legislation sponsored by Senators Kevin O’Toole (R-40) and Diane Allen (R-7) to protect the e-privacy of job seekers.
“Social networking users have the right and freedom to use their accounts to share private messages with family and friends, express their religions and sexual preferences, and post images and videos with family and friends,” O’Toole said. “By no means should an employer be able to forcibly access such a broad scope of personal information against an applicant’s will. There are plenty of other steps in a job application process for employers to gain a profound understanding of an applicant’s experience, fitness and personality.”
Senator Diane Allen, prime sponsor of “The Jessica Lunsford Act” which severely increases penalties for violent sex crimes against a child, praised Senate leadership for plans to hear the bill in committee tomorrow, September 20, 2012.
“I am pleased that the Senate President was willing to work with me to get this important child protection measure moving through the legislature, and that Chairman Sarlo has agreed to post it in the Budget Committee,” said Allen (R- Burlington). “The high rate of recidivism among sex offenders demands that they be removed from society for a very long time before even having the opportunity to be paroled.”
Senator Allen Congratulates Burlington County Teacher of the Year, Kimberly Murray of Lenape Regional High School
Senator Diane Allen (R- Burlington) today congratulated Lenape Regional High School chemistry teacher Kimberly Murray on her selection as Burlington County’s Teacher of the Year:
“Good teachers are among New Jersey’s most valuable assets,” said Allen. “Kimberly Murray is a shining example of what is right and good about public education in New Jersey, and what we talk about as we strive to have a great teacher in every classroom. This is an educator who goes above and beyond to help her students learn, and has received state, national, and even international recognition for her efforts and her students’ achievements. Congratulations, and my thanks, go out to Kimberly for being an excellent teacher to our children.”
Senator Diane Allen will be on hand to help Riverview Estates, a long-term care facility in Riverton, Burlington County, celebrate the completion of its latest energy conservation project: the installation of photovoltaic energy panels and a solar reflective roof.
