26 Apr: Sweeney / Burzichelli / Fisher Bill To Expand Opportunities For Farmers

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Stephen M. Sweeney and Assemblymen John J. Burzichelli and Douglas H. Fisher, which will provide flexibility for farmers to use their farm vehicles to transport “farm supplies” from any area farm, became law today.

“The farmers in New Jersey have been experiencing economic hardships after a season with poor crops,” said Senator Sweeney, D-Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem. “Mother Nature is not always kind to our area farms and the unpredictable weather makes it difficult to keep their farms operating.”
