New Jersey is considering barring stores from discriminating against customers who want to pay with cash.

Assemblyman Paul Moriarty says his bill would require cash to be accepted for any retail transaction conducted in-person in New Jersey.

“There have been credit card companies and some food chains that have said we want to go cashless. And I believe that this marginalizes people that are poor, people that don’t have access to credit, and also young people that have not established credit yet.”

Legislation that won unanimous approval in the New Jersey Assembly would extend anti-nepotism rules to the state’s public and charter schools.

Assemblyman Paul Moriarty says taxpayers deserve every assurance that the people charged with educating their children attained their positions because of what they know, not who they know.

Used car dealers would have to tell a potential buyer about any safety recall that a previous owner ignored if a bill advancing in New Jersey's legislature becomes law.

and notify a potential purchaser before a sale is finalized.
