Committee members and speakers at Thursday's hearing ? most of them people who provide support services for victims of abuse ? referenced the Rice video.
Assemblywoman Carolyn Casagrande,Wholesale Jerseys China, a Republican from Colts Neck, said there may need to be more laws as well as better enforcement of existing domestic violence statutes.
"We're saying to those who are offenders, to those in homes where there have been offenders that we're taking this seriously," said Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt, a Democrat from Cherry Hill and the chairwoman of the committee. "It doesn't end when somebody is incarcerated. It continues when they get out on parole."
"The ability to use closed-circuit TV can literally mean life and death for our victims," she said.

Rice, who has since married the woman he was seen hitting and dragging out of an elevator, was released this week by the team and suspended indefinitely by the NFL.
