Proyecto de ley de Coughlin para ayudar a los bancos de alimentos con la transición a bolsas reutilizables es aprobado por la legislatura
Legislación para dar prórroga de 6 meses, donar 500,000 bolsas reusables

(TRENTON) – Los bancos y despensas de alimentos se han enfrentado a varios desafíos en los últimos dos años debido a la creciente demanda de alimentos, las interrupciones en la cadena de suministro, la escasez de mano de obra y la inflación que ejerce presión sobre la capacidad operativa.
Reconociendo que la prohibición de las bolsas para llevar de un solo uso podría obstaculizar aún más las operaciones de ayuda alimentaria, el portavoz de la Asamblea, Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex), patrocina la legislación (A-2065) para dar a los bancos de alimentos y despensas de alimentos otros seis meses para prepararse para el cumplimiento de la Prohibición de Nueva Jersey de Bolsas de Plástico de un Solo Uso y de papel desechable a partir del 4 de mayo.
“La demanda de asistencia alimentaria persiste y, por lo tanto, lo que hace esta legislación es equilibrar el deseo de convertirnos en un estado más respetuoso con el medio ambiente con nuestra capacidad de apoyar a las organizaciones que continúan siendo críticas para mantener a las personas alimentadas”, dijo Coughlin.
Aprobado por el Comité de Gobierno Estatal y Local de la Asamblea la semana pasada, el proyecto de ley recibió la aprobación legislativa final el jueves, con la aprobación de 58-15-6 votos en la Asamblea. La legislación proporcionaría 500,000 bolsas reutilizables gratuitas para los bancos de alimentos del estado, como parte de la campaña de información y educación del Departamento de Protección Ambiental de Nueva Jersey.
“Al crear esta extensión además de distribuir 500 000 bolsas reusables, estamos brindando el tiempo y los recursos que reconocemos que las despensas que enfrentan una gran demanda, necesitan para tener éxito en hacer el cambio”, dijo Coughlin. “Simplemente no podemos dejar atrás a nuestras familias con inseguridad alimentaria y este proyecto de ley asegura cuidadosamente que no lo hagamos”.
El proyecto de ley va al escritorio del Gobernador.

Legisladores del estado de Nueva Jersey, Coughlin y Gopal, proponen que las escuelas secundarias de NJ comiencen las clases más tarde para impulsar la salud mental de los adolescentes
(TRENTON) – El sistema educativo de Nueva Jersey continúa clasificado como el mejor de la nación, pero luego de dos años de pandemia increíblemente difíciles, el panorama nacional de la salud mental infantil está empeorando en detrimento de los estudiantes y sus resultados educativos.
Comenzando el trabajo de abordar esta crisis nacional de salud mental juvenil, el presidente de la Asamblea Craig J. Coughlin y el senador Vin Gopal introdujeron una legislación el jueves, que propone impulsar los horarios de inicio de las escuelas secundarias en todo el estado en Nueva Jersey a no antes de las 8:30 a.m. a partir del año escolar 2024-2025.
“Cuando los estudiantes descansan bien y comen comidas nutritivas, están mejor preparados para tener éxito en la escuela”, dijo Coughlin (D-Middlesex). “De manera abrumadora, las investigaciones y las historias de éxito de los distritos escolares de otros estados muestran que los beneficios de los horarios de inicio más tardíos para el bienestar integral de los estudiantes, en términos de salud mental y rendimiento académico, superan fácilmente los costos”.
Los ritmos biológicos inducen naturalmente a los adolescentes a acostarse más tarde, por lo que cuando el primer período comienza demasiado temprano, ejerce más presión sobre el proceso del sueño y puede empeorar la calidad del sueño. Al profundizar el vínculo entre el sueño y la salud mental, un estudio reciente encontró que los adolescentes que comienzan la escuela antes de las 8:30 a. m. pueden correr un riesgo particular de experimentar depresión y ansiedad.
“El sueño es fundamental para el bienestar mental y físico de los estudiantes”, dijo el Senador Vin Gopal (D-Monmouth). “Asegurarse de que los estudiantes descansen lo suficiente es un primer paso importante para abordar el aumento alarmante de los problemas de salud mental de ellos, algo que estamos observando en Nueva Jersey”.
“La sección de Nueva Jersey de la Academia Estadounidense de Pediatría (NJAAP) apoya con entusiasmo este proyecto de ley patrocinado por el portavoz Coughlin y el senador Gopal, que fomenta horarios de inicio de clases más tardíos para las escuelas secundarias de Nueva Jersey”, dijo Jeanne Craft, MD, FAAP, presidenta del Capítulo de Nueva Jersey de la Academia Estadounidense de Pediatría. “La investigación demuestra que los horarios de inicio escolar más tardíos para los adolescentes contribuyen a un mejor desempeño académico, calidad de vida, salud mental y asistencia escolar”.
El grupo de trabajo de NJAAP sobre el sueño de los adolescentes y los horarios de inicio de clases, dirigido por el Dr. Bert Mandelbaum, ha abogado durante mucho tiempo por horarios de inicio más tardíos y ha estado trabajando para educar sobre la importancia de mejorar el sueño y la salud mental de los adolescentes.
“Nada ha demostrado que los distritos escolares sean capaces de hacer cambios rápidos para adaptarse y optimizar el aprendizaje de los estudiantes más que la pandemia”, dijo Coughlin. “Con evidencia clara de que un comienzo tardío ayuda a los estudiantes, ha llegado la oportunidad de actuar”.
Esta legislación se vincula con el impulso más amplio del presidente de la Asamblea para transformar la forma en que se entiende y percibe la política de salud mental infantil en Nueva Jersey, y para mejorar el acceso, el tratamiento y la integración de la atención en todos los entornos.
