“The CDC offered clear guidance yesterday that there’s no need from a public health perspective for people who are vaccinated to wear masks or social distance indoors or outdoors, even around unvaccinated people,” said Schepisi (R-39). “The CDC says they are basing their new guidance on scientific studies that demonstrate vaccinated people are protected from the virus and incapable of transmitting it to others. There’s absolutely no justification for Governor Murphy to maintain burdensome restrictions that are not supported by science.”

To help address the ongoing unemployment delays in New Jersey, Senator Holly Schepisi (R-39) and Senator Michael Testa (R-1) have introduced legislation to help residents get the benefits they have earned by requiring state employees to work in person if their job requires face-to-face interaction with the public.

“I have heard from so many constituents who have been waiting months to get their unemployment payments. These delays are indefensible and have significantly impacted thousands of New Jersey families,” said Schepisi (R-39). “Trying to settle claims online or via email clearly has not worked. Yet, in most cases, the problems could be easily solved with a face-to-face discussion with a Department of Labor specialist. My legislation will get State workers back to their desks where they can meet face-to-face with New Jerseyans and solve the problems in a timely manner.”

“Families have been begging Governor Murphy for months to reopen the adult day care programs that their loved ones with disabilities depend upon to build skills and socialize,” said Schepisi (R-39). “Unfortunately, his long overdue response is so timid that half of the vulnerable population previously served by congregate day programs will continued to be denied access.”
