Baroni Silver Alert Legislation Approved by Committee New Jersey Senator Bill Baroni NJ District 14: "The Senate Law and Public Safety Committee approved bill S1551/S1844, establishing a “Silver Alert System” for missing people who are believed to be suffering from dementia or other cognitive impairments."
