Jersey senators have unanimously approved a bill to extend to one year the
registration period for commercial vehicles.
state law requires CMVs to be registered every 11 months. Most other motor
vehicles in the state need to be registered once a year.
is no common sense reason why commercial vehicles cannot be registered for a
full year, just like almost any other motor vehicle in New Jersey,” Assemblyman
Patrick Diegnan Jr., D-South Plainfield, said in a written statement.
Peter Barnes Jr., D-Edison, said truck drivers have other more important issues
to keep track off.
of the commercial vehicles registered in New Jersey belong to small businesses
concerned with their day-to-day survival, not whether this is the month their
vehicle registration expires,” Barnes said.
bill, A3365, which previously won unanimous consent by Assembly lawmakers, now
heads to acting Gov. Richard Codey for his signature.
