During Gov. Chris Christie’s administration, funding for women’s reproductive health care was slashed. More than $7 million per year was eliminated for health and family planning for uninsured women -- funding that went to lifesaving, preventive services including breast and cervical cancer screenings, birth control, and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections and HIV.
Health centers were forced to close. Breast and cervical cancer cases increased. And Morris County had the highest surge in bacterial sexually transmitted infections in the state.
Did Jay Webber stand with other legislators who voted to protect NJ women by restoring the needed funding? Not a chance. He voted against the bill that provided a safety net for low-income women.

When thousands of students and families across the state marched in support of tougher gun laws this spring, astute legislators paid attention. A few weeks later, New Jersey joined eight other states and Washington DC to pass laws banning large capacity ammunition magazines holding more than ten rounds.
Despite the fact that residents in our congressional district favor having strong gun laws, Jay Webber voted against this reasonable measure.
