NJ Legislature gets back to work

New Jersey's Legislature got back to work today, starting to wrap up the final eight weeks of this year's session.

Among the bills passed out of committee today were a bill that requires the state's Motor Vehicle Commission to cut average wait times for customers down to half an hour, a plan to give residents an income tax credit for interest paid on student loans, and a bill to help stop the spread of HIV and AIDS by allowing pharmacies to sell hypodermic needles over the counter.
