The Senate Transportation Committee advanced today a resolution sponsored by Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) urging commercial airlines to implement and enact policies concerning peanuts on flights to address allergy concerns.
“Peanut allergies can have lethal consequences and are nothing to mess around with,” Kyrillos said. “Airlines have a responsibility to provide basic safeguards for passengers with special health needs. People who report a peanut allergy to an airline should have the comfort of knowing they won’t be served peanuts or put in danger of an allergic attack because of a fellow passenger’s snack.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), who serves a district among the most devastated by Superstorm Sandy one year ago, shared the following sentiments for the people of New Jersey:
“So much has been restored yet there is still much more work to do. To the families, small business owners and communities still trying to restore their homes, stores and neighborhoods: I know how painful this year has been and I will continue doing everything possible with the Christie administration to force the federal government to immediately release the tens of billions of your recovery dollars that it has been withholding. We cannot endure much more time, as overdue funding is obstructed by regulations and red tape. People are desperate to restore their lives.
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) has introduced a Senate resolution urging the Italian government to keep open its consulate in Newark.
“This consulate serves 4,000 people per year in a state that boasts the nation’s fourth-highest Italian-American population and is home to the second-highest number of Italian immigrants,” Kyrillos said. “We cannot sit silent, as these New Jerseyans and visiting Italians will be forced to travel to other states in order to receive medical, non-medical and document services.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) has introduced a resolution urging commercial airlines to implement and enact policies concerning peanuts on flights to address allergy concerns.
“Families who report a peanut allergy to an airline should have the comfort of knowing they won’t be served peanuts or put in danger of an allergic attack because of a fellow passenger’s snack,” Kyrillos said. “Airlines have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for all passengers. Sadly, this is not always the case.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) has garnered Democratic support for legislation he introduced today to allow New Jersey residents to invest in New Jersey-based businesses, while the SEC continues to delay full implementation of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”).
“I’m pleased to share that this vital economic growth measure has so quickly garnered Democratic support so that we have the opportunity to swiftly get it to the Governor,” Kyrillos said. “This legislation will help generate much-needed capital for New Jersey entrepreneurs to start and grow their products and services, as federal regulators continue to debate how to fully implement the JOBS Act. The crowd funding aspect should have been implemented some 273 days ago.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) is introducing legislation that will allow New Jersey residents to invest in New Jersey-based businesses, while the Obama administration continues to delay full implementation of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”), enacted in April 2012.
“At a time when conventional sources of financing are scarce, this legislation will help New Jersey’s innovators seek private capital from the investing public to develop their products or services right here in our state,” Kyrillos said. “It will clear the way for responsible, private investment to jump start small businesses and increase job opportunities.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos, a prime sponsor of the “Economic Opportunity Act” enacted today by Gov. Chris Christie, said this bipartisan effort should lead to a lot more.
“We got this done to boost New Jersey’s private-sector economy, because many Republicans and Democrats realize that this legislature desperately needs to do more to attract and retain job creators,” said Kyrillos (R-Monmouth). “We came together; we compromised to create more opportunities for New Jersey families. This should be the bridge to comprehensive tax reform that New Jerseyans have been waiting on for far too long.”

The bipartisan “Economic Opportunity Act” sponsored by Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) to create thousands of new private-sector jobs was advanced by the Senate today to Gov. Chris Christie for approval.
“In the months that this act was unnecessarily delayed by poor Senate and Assembly leadership, New Jersey missed out on new job creation, as other states such as North Carolina passed monumental measures to attract businesses,” Kyrillos said. “Now, we can tell families and job creators that the anxious wait is over and the Economic Opportunity Act is finally on the brink of enactment to help ensure New Jersey retains and attracts employers in the immediate future.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-13) issued the following statement in remembrance of the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:
“Even after the passage of twelve years, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 appear no less horrific or senseless than they did that day. More importantly, the memories of lost loved ones are no less honored today than then, nor has the feeling of pride lessened when we remember how first responders and concerned citizens rushed to help those in need. God bless them, and God bless America.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) issued the following statement today on the passing of former state Senator Jack Sinagra:
“Susan and I were very saddened to learn the news of Jack’s passing. We served in the senate together for a decade and I was proud of our partnership on important legislation and our friendship.
“Jack Sinagra lived a significant life distinguishing himself as a person through his contributions to the public and private sectors. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
