Armed Forces & Veterans

Assemblywoman Quijano has a great respect for civic duty and sponsoring bills beneficial for the armed forces and veteran’s community is imperative for her.

Her most recent sponsored legislation for this community include the following:

A Quijano-sponsored bill to honor fallen first responders with memorial sign program became law. To Quijano, the law is dedicated to the hometown heroes who have dedicated their life to saving others’ lives. The law serves to continue to say thank you and pay homage to the work they accomplished in New Jersey’s communities. Read more here: http://www.assemblydems.com/Article.asp?ArticleID=10585.

Another sponsored bill that exempts disabled veterans and purple heart recipients from parking fees became law. Quijano believes with the law, New Jersey can continue to show appreciation to our brave veterans for their sacrifices and efforts to preserve democracy around the world.
