TRENTON –  Senator Nia Gill was successful at  shepherding two age-friendly bills past the committee level in the NJ Senate on Monday, June 8, 2015.  Senator Nia H. Gill, Penny Carey (Montclair SCAC) and Ann Lippel (Montclair SCAC) testified before the NJ Senate Community and Urban Affairs committee on Monday, June 8, 2015.  After testimony, the bill package [S2523 & S2524 described below] passed out of committee.  The SCAC is very grateful to Senator Gill for her leadership in making New Jersey a place where its seniors can ‘age in place” with dignity. Where does the legislation go from here? The Senate bills will go to the full Senate for a vote. The companion NJ Assembly bills has yet to come out of committee.  Watch this space for updates on progress through the Assembly.
