TRENTON - Legislators in Trenton have had some unusual lawmaking to do from the State House lately.

Recent issues like a proposal to ban replacement referees from New Jersey professional sports have drawn criticism from voters. Some say more serious issues, such as the economy and property taxes, should take precedence.

A recent proposal requiring dogs to wear seatbelts is a popular one among New Jersey voters, according to a recent poll, however.

Other bills up for consideration this legislative year include proposals to name state songs and add two new state license plates.

The fall legislative season continues tomorrow.
