* * * * * DiFrancesco Pushes Stiffer Law On Restrictions for Gun Crimes

TRENTON — New Jersey Senate President Donald T. DiFrancesco of Scotch Plains has told the New Jersey Order of Police membership that enactment of an initiative that would implement a federal sentencing for crimes committed with guns be one of his top legislative priorities this fall.

Speaking at the law enforcement organization’s annual convention on August 10,SenatorDiFrancescoasked to support S2046 and to work with him to put “wouldbe criminals on

notice that New Jersey is tough on gun crimes.”

The legislation was sponsored by Senator DiFrancesco and Senator Diane Allen (R7th). The measure passed in the Senate May 18 by an 380 tally.

The legislation would appropriate $5 million toward to statewide implementation of Project Exile, a program in use in major cities nationwide including Camden.

The program would enable New Jersey to prosecute gun cases on the federal level where sentencing is more stringent and bond rules prevail, according to Renee M. Trabert, spokeswoman for Senator DiFrancesco.
