UPDATE: New Jersey Governor Signs Big Limo Bill

Posted on January 20, 2010 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

TRENTON, N.J. — One day before leaving office, outgoing New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine signed into law on Monday A3634/S2716, Amending the Limo Law, a piece of legislation spurred by the Limousine Associations of New Jersey.

The bill will prevent anyone trying to use the template of rent-a-car and rent-a- chauffeur to skirt New Jersey law, increase the number of passengers operators can legally carry in a stretch limousine, give law enforcement “probable cause” to go after illegal operators, and protect operators from municipalities charging exorbitant fees.

“This is a not only major victory for New Jersey but should serve as a model for the rest of the country,” LANJ director Barry Lefkowitz wrote in an e-mail to members and industry figures.

E-mailed recipients promptly applauded the two-year effort led by Lefkowitz and involving many members of the LANJ board and the group’s legislative committee members and volunteers.

“Congratulations to you and your entire team! This is a major accomplishment and it's great to see how all the hard work put into this has paid off,” wrote NLA President Ron Sorci.

“This is fantastic news! I would like to stress that everyone involved with the State Limousine Advisory Board; and The Limousine Associations of New Jersey collectively provided substantial input and direction in order to bring these concepts to law,” wrote Jeffrey M. Shanker, vice president of A-1 Limousine Inc. in Princeton, N.J. and the leader of the LANJ legislative team.

LCT Magazine has previously reported the details of the bill approved by the New Jersey State Senate last week.

The bill takes effect 60 days after the Governor’s signature.
