NJ May Waive License for Snow-Shoveling Service

TRENTON (AP) -

New Jersey residents who advertise their snow-shoveling services within 24 hours of a predicted snowstorm could operate free from municipal regulations under a bill being considered in the Legislature.

An Assembly committee on Thursday advanced the measure, which was inspired by two Bound Brook teens who passed out fliers to homeowners before a storm in January but were warned by police they might have broken the law.
