Christie Signs 10 Bills Into Law

TRENTON (AP) -

Gov. Chris Christie signed 10 measures into New Jersey law on Monday.

Some of the laws include: Requiring a high school driver education course, certain new driver brochures and the driver’s license written exam to include aggressive driving information. Another calls for annual physical examinations of children 19 years of age or younger to include certain questions related to cardiac health.

One measure allows an attending advanced practice nurse to determine the cause of death and execute the death certification of a patient if that nurse is the primary caregiver. Another requires public utilities to prepare a study evaluating street light outages.

A law lets the state prevent payment to vendors for delinquent unemployment and disability taxes. Another provides that a worker who leaves one job for another, and is then laid off from the second position, is not disqualified for unemployment insurance benefits.
