Prescriptions, homeowners insurance among topics at statehouse in Trenton
Eliminating mistakes when picking up prescriptions and homeowners insurance were among the many topics at the statehouse in Trenton Monday.
Assemblyman Jeff Van Drew (D-Cape May) testified that anywhere from 2 to 4 percent of all prescriptions could have written mistakes. His proposed bill would create a task force to come up with solutions to the common problems with hand-written prescriptions.
Another bill proposed by a state Assembly committee would help homeowners get an insurance company?s cancellation parameters before they sign for an insurance policy.According to Assemblyman John McKeon (D-Essex), the bill would let consumers know what a company?s underwriting criteria is.
Meanwhile, another committee expressed its disapproval of the radio talk show host who verbally attacked acting Governor Dick Codey?s wife. However, the committee did not vote to censor the host.
