BOUND BROOK - A new law will allow for the solicitation of snow shoveling services in New Jersey. 
The issue of soliciting snow shovel services was brought to light last winter after a pair of students ran into legal problems.
Rutgers student Matt Molinari and his friend were stopped by police for unknowingly breaking an ordinance in Bound Brook last year while handing out fliers for their snow shoveling service.
While the young men stopped passing out fliers, one potential customer took to Facebook to express how he felt on the issue. The subject then went viral.
The new state law supersedes any municipal ordinance, allowing solicitation of shoveling services for up to 24 hours prior to predicted snowstorm.
