“Today, many student-parents are forced to choose work over their education because they cannot afford child care,” said Congressman Norcross, a member of the House Committee on Education and Labor. “Access to quality, affordable child care for college students impacts the strength of our economy and the diversity of our workforce. The PROSPECT Act will help provide student-parents with a level playing field. South Jersey is a leader in higher education, and this legislation will ensure that parents, their children and educators are afforded the resources and opportunities they need to succeed.”
“I believe there is overwhelming evidence to conclude well beyond a reasonable doubt that President Trump is guilty of both articles of impeachment – Article I: Abuse of Power and Article II: Obstruction of Congress. Therefore, I will uphold my oath to protect and defend the Constitution and vote in favor of both articles of impeachment.
“Important research is happening right here in our backyards in South Jersey,” said Congressman Norcross, a member of the House Committee on Education and Labor. “This funding will support critical research to help improve the quality of life of those suffering from anxiety disorders and advance treatment and find cures for some of the most devastating diseases of our time. I look forward to seeing the results of these grants and the positive impact Rowan University’s SOM’s research will have not only on our area but nationwide.”
Norcross was in Camden — where he lives, several blocks away on the other side of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge — Monday afternoon along with his congressional colleague U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, to tout $16.2 million in federally-funded Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) work.
Rep. Donald Norcross (D-Camden) told the New Jersey Legislature that he opposed a bill to delay planned minimum wage increases, calling the premise of the proposal “illogical.”
“This is an irresponsible proposal that will harm both workers and businesses,” Norcross wrote. “This proposal should be rejected by the Senate Labor Committee on Thursday and I’m calling on all New Jerseyans to make their voices heard today. It’s good for the economy, it’s right for workers, people support it and you promised to do it: Raise the Wage.”
