RELEASE: April 4, 2001


Acting Governor Donald T.
DiFrancesco signed the following legislation today:


A-1932, sponsored by Assemblymen Kip Bateman (R-Morris/Somerset) and Ken LeFevre (R-Atlantic) and Senators Gary Furnari (D-Bergen/Essex/Passaic) and James Cafiero (R-Cape May/Atlantic/Cumberland), allocates certain motor vehicle surcharges for alcohol treatment programs, a recommendation of the 1998 Senate Task Force on Alcohol Related Motor Vehicle Accidents and Fatalities in New Jersey. The bill allocates $1.5 million in Fiscal Year 2002 from the Division of Motor Vehicles Surcharge Fund, which contains surcharges collected from drunk drivers, to provide grants to fund treatment programs for alcoholism and alcohol dependency among drunk drivers. The amount will be increased by $1.5 million per year to an upper limit of $7.5 million in Fiscal Year 2006 and each year thereafter. The allocation would be used to create an Alcohol Treatment Program Fund in the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS).
