NJ Lawmakers May Revisit Residency for Public Workers

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -

New Jersey lawmakers are having second thoughts about a 3-year-old law that requires public workers at all levels to live in the state.

A state Senate committee on Thursday advanced a bill that would exempt school district employees in 10 counties from the measure. Unions claim it would help attract more workers while foes say that people who are paid by state entities should pay taxes in the state.
