TRENTON, N.J. — The Assembly approved a resolution Thursday urging the Christie Administration to give the Attorney General the responsibility of investigating abuse and neglect of disabled people at state-licensed facilities.
Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) sponsored the non-binding resolution (ACR147)
at the request of families who testified at a hearing Monday that they
have lost confidence in the Department of Human Services’ ability and
impartiality to investigate the people who run group homes and
facilities the department also pays and licenses.
