After Court Overturns School Mask Rule in PA, Pennacchio Says NJ Should Be Next

Sen. Joe Pennacchio:

I think Pennsylvania courts made the right decision in striking down the Wolf administration’s school mask mandate after taking the time to conduct a thorough legal review

Hopefully, the Pennsylvania ruling will put more scrutiny on Governor Murphy’s mask mandates here in New Jersey and lead to their repeal.

We believe masking decisions should be made by parents, not government.

After a court struck down Gov. Tom Wolf's school mask mandate in Pennsylvania, Sen. Joe Pennacchio urged Gov. Phil Murphy to lift his mask order for New Jersey's schools and children.

Pennacchio/Testa Bill Will Recognize Natural Immunity as Satisfying COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements

“We don’t think anyone should be discriminated against due to their vaccination status, personal health decisions, or desire for medical privacy,” said Sen. Joe Pennacchio (R-26). “However, to the extent that Governor Murphy and others have imposed burdensome vaccine mandates already, we believe those requirements should be based on science and recognize the significant protection and natural immunity that results from a person’s prior COVID-19 infection.”

Sen. Joe Pennacchio and Sen. Michael Testa have introduced legislation that could allow a person's naturally developed immunity resulting from a prior COVID-19 infection to satisfy vaccination requirements imposed on workplaces, schools, or any other entity in the state.

Senate Republicans Urge Democrats to Heed the Message Sent by Voters

While we may not know the results of every election for some time, voters in New Jersey, Virginia, and other places across the country sent a clear message that they are tired of having their concerns dismissed by Democrat leaders who think they know better.

Parents who are upset with the direction of their schools came out in force to ensure they have a say in what’s being taught in their children’s classrooms.

Young adults, growing families, and seniors who are struggling to get by voted for lower taxes, a focus on affordability, and to ward off anyone who might consider expensive new policies that would make their problems worse.

After yesterday, it should be clear that whatever mandate Democrats thought they had to govern from the far left no longer exists. In its place, voters in New Jersey and elsewhere left a new mandate for all elected officials to get back to basics and start addressing their constituents’ important concerns.

Senate Republicans urged New Jersey Democrats to heed the clear message sent by voters on Election Day.

Senator Kristin M. Corrado: "Given the pent-up frustration of so many New Jerseyans, I wouldn’t want to be Governor Murphy if he breaks his promise by failing to reopen all State offices to the public on Monday. The doors better be unlocked, the lights turned on, and the centers fully staffed for business."

NJ child care centers brace for backlash over mask mandate | Video | NJ Spotlight News

“The teachers are now becoming mask police,” says one child-care center executive.

Others claim Gov. Phil Murphy’s recent executive order mandating masks for visitors, staff and kids from ages two and up will cause big problems for an already struggling industry.

Short-staffed centers say more mandates could drive away desperately needed teachers.

Pennacchio Blasts Murphy’s Mask Mandate for 2-Year-Olds

Sen. Joe Pennacchio: Every parent who has ever tried to get a photo of their 2-year-old in a Halloween mask knows this rule is futile.

When you put any covering on a 2-year-old's face, they instinctively grab it and pull it off.

The Governor knows this. He knows his mandate is impossible to accomplish and impossible to enforce.

Sen. Pennacchio denounced Murphy's latest COVID edict requiring children as young as 2 years old to wear masks at day care centers.

Senator Mike Doherty: "I don't see Governor Murphy's dangerous mask order as anything less than child abuse."

Testa: Not a Single Democratic Legislator Has Signed Petition to Stop Gov. Murphy’s Payroll Tax Increase Next Month

Apparently there's not a single Trenton Democrat who's willing to do anything to help stop Governor Murphy's unnecessary tax increase on employers from taking effect next month.

Sen. Michael Testa said not a single Democrat in the New Jersey Legislature has signed a petition they were sent to convene a special legislative session to prevent an upcoming payroll tax increase on employers.

O’Scanlon: Murphy’s Payroll Tax Increase Will Be the Next Disaster to Hit NJ Businesses

While Governor Murphy expressed sympathy for small businesses impacted by recent flooding and storm damage, he still plans on walloping them again next month with a big financial hit they can ill afford.

Unlike Hurricane Ida, the next disaster that will target New Jersey’s struggling employers is completely avoidable and preventable.

That’s why it’s so important that Republicans and Democrats work together to stop Governor Murphy’s looming business tax increase.

If they want to support jobs and businesses in their communities, every Democratic legislator should sign the petition that was delivered to each of their offices to call a special session.

It’s the only guaranteed way to stop the next Murphy disaster.

Sen. Declan O'Scanlon warned that the looming payroll tax increase that Gov. Phil Murphy will impose in October is the next disaster that will hit New Jersey's struggling employers.
