Reckless Legislating

November 21, 2013

The open borders lobby, flush with success after its victory in the Mexifornia legislature, as well as the nation’s capital, is attempting to expand its dominion over American citizens in the Garden State. The legislative push to give illegal aliens driver’s licenses, under the mistaken presumption that criminals will behave lawfully once sanctioned by the state to operate deadly motor vehicles, is well under way.

Below you will find information about the people who will decide the fate of this inconceivably stupid bill, as well as a link which will allow you to contact your assemblyman directly in order to voice your opposition. I urge all New Jerseyans to make a good faith effort to do so before this their state becomes the next one to endanger the lives of law-abiding Americans.

The Assembly Higher Education Committee is a Group A committee. The Assembly Appropriations Committee is a Group B committee.

Looking at the new schedule below, I think that the in-state tuition for illegals bill could be heard in Higher Ed on Dec. 12. If they second reference it to Assembly Approps, they could hold that on January 9. If they reference it to the floor instead, it could come up for a vote at any of the voting session days.

And so you are aware, the committee agendas come out like this:

For a Monday meeting, they come out the Wednesday evening before usually after 4:30. For a Thursday meeting, they come out the Friday evening before.

For an Assembly Voting Session on a Monday, the board list will come out the Tuesday evening before instead; for a Thursday voting session, it will come out on the Friday evening before.

Best way to check is to check the state legislative page- in the middle of the page is a calendar. Click on the day of the hearing the night we think the list of bills will come out and when it is posted, it will appear.

Besides keeping the three Republicans on board (DeCroce, DiMaio, Gove), Riley is the only Democrat on the committee from a worrisome district. She represents most of Gloucester County, all of Salem, and three towns in Cumberland. Heart of Greenwich TEA Party country. Mainor and Contillo will not be back next session. Giblin is a sponsor already. Coughlin is a in a district that includes Perth Amboy which has a huge Hispanic population.
