Solar Panel Safety Bill Signed Into Law

I'm proud to say that another bill I worked on has been signed into law by Governor Christie!

A-266 aims to protect firefighters who are called upon to battle fires on buildings that have photovoltaic (solar panel) systems.  The new law requires that basic information relating to solar panel installations be filed with local fire departments, and that the exterior of the building be labeled with a clearly visible placard (smaller residential buildings are exempt from the placard requirement).

I worked on this bill for almost two years, and it's gratifying to see it finally come to fruition.

You can read more about this new law HERE and HERE.

Pope Francis: "The Internet is a Gift from God"

Pope Francis asserts that to have a true dialogue means keeping an open mind, and acknowledging that the other person's perspective--even if vastly different from your own--has value and is worthwhile. He also compared modern-day digital communications to "a fine wine which gladdens the heart."  I love this guy!
