Singleton, Burzichelli, Gusciora Measure Cutting Down on Abuse of Disabled Parking Permits Gets Final Legislative Approval

(TRENTON) – Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, John J. Burzichelli and Reed Gusciora to prevent the misuse of disability identification cards and placards received final legislative approval Thursday and now heads to the governor’s desk.

“Instances of abuse involving individuals with disability parking tags were first brought to my attention by a concerned constituent with a severe disability who had firsthand experience with the problem,” said Singleton (D-Burlington). “After listening to her concerns and talking to my colleagues, we came up with what we think is a simple, yet effective, way to address the problem.”

Singleton said he was especially proud of the bill because it was inspired by a “citizen-legislator” who shared the idea through the “There Should Be A Law” section of his website, http://www.TroySingleton.com. “This bill was a direct result of the partnership between my office and our constituents, and really underscores how we have tried to open Trenton up to our neighbors in the 7th legislative district to allow them to be active participants in our democracy,” added Singleton.
