NEW JERSEY — New Jersey’s lawmakers on Tuesday approved a bill that would require all businesses in the state to sound the horn and ban noise in public places and at concerts.
The House approved the measure by a vote of 39-0, after a similar proposal by Gov.
Chris Christie failed last year.
The bill, which would have made noise a class C misdemeanor, passed the Senate by a unanimous vote of 26-0 and was awaiting final action in the Assembly.
The bill is now headed to Christie for his signature, which will be expected in the next few days.
