(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Paul Moriarty (D-Camden/Gloucester) authorizing the creation of special license plates to support transitional housing programs serving New Jersey's homeless veterans was approved Monday by an Assembly committee.
"New Jersey has among its homeless population an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 veterans. This is a travesty," said Moriarty. "These men and women put their lives on the line to protect our country. They deserve better. These license plates not only honor their sacrifice, but would provide these facilities with additional funds to continue their work with veterans who have fallen on hard times."
The bill (A-3283) would authorize a special "Support Our Veterans" license plate with the proceeds supporting New Jersey homeless veteran's centers, Veterans Haven, North and South.

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
