(TRENTON) - An Assembly panel on Monday approved legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Linda Stender and Joseph V. Egan to ensure public safety workers who suffer a disability or death due to their often extreme work requirements are covered by workers' compensation.
"These workers are our first line of defense. Their jobs are not only stressful, they are dangerous," said Stender (D-Middlesex/Somerset/Union). "This bill ensures that public safety workers are adequately covered if they suffer a debilitating illness or worse related to their duties at work."
"Public safety workers expose themselves to dangerous situations that could prove debilitating and even deadly," said Egan (D-Middlesex/Somerset). "The work is grueling not just physically, but mentally. The work itself can be a health hazard. They deserve comparable coverage."

We are not going to tell the governor to unleash the dollars. Don’t be fooled. It’s not abracadabra. It’s politics.” - Paterson Mayor Jeff Jones- PolitickerNJ.com
