Assemblywoman Quijano is known as a champion for public safety in the State of New Jersey. She served as Chairwoman of the Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee from 2011-2018, and homeland security continues to be at the top of Quijano’s agenda. Quijano maintains strong relationships with the first responders, law enforcement, fire fighters, and all who contribute to the public safety of New Jersey.
One of her landmark legislative priorities calls for New Jersey to grant driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants. The bill is designed to improve public safety on New Jersey roads since it will make certain that all people on the road are appropriately tested and licensed and are driving vehicles that are registered and insured.
