A proposal for pregnant parking delivers controversy in NJ

Posted: Updated:

? Some New Jersey lawmakers are pushing for a law that allows pregnant women to park in handicapped spaces, but not everyone is happy.

If approved, pregnant women could apply for a temporary parking pass to use the spaces. Expecting mothers like Carolina Billalba of Bedminister, who?s six months pregnant, says closer parking would make it easier for her to shop. Critics say the measure could seriously inconvenience handicapped people, especially where parking is limited.

Assemblymen John McKeon, Mims Hackett and John Wisniewski introduced the legislation.
