SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - Assemblyman Patrick J. Diegnan, Jr. (D-Middlesex) announces the signage of twenty four of his bills into law on the eve of taking the oath of office for his eighth term as a member of the New Jersey General Assembly.
South Plainfield resident Patrick Diegnan reflected on his work during the recently completed two year legislative session. “I have always believed that we need to work together regardless of political affiliation to do what’s best for the residents of New Jersey. I am proud that my bills to protect the environment, fight for stronger public schools and defend consumer protections were supported on a bi-partisan basis and signed into law by Governor Christie,” said Diegnan (D-Middlesex). “The one that is closest to my heart is Abigail’s Law which requires sensors be installed on school buses to detect the movement of small children around the outside of the bus. As our South Plainfield community painfully knows, this legislation is named after young Abilgail Kuberiet, whom we lost tragically in 2003. My words cannot capture my appreciation to the Kuberiet family for their support during the long uphill process to make this requirement the law of our state.”
