New Jersey bill benefits car-sharing organizations
A bill making the rounds in the New Jersey Assembly would promote car-sharing by lifting a $5 state surcharge for rentals.
Introduced by Assemblymen Ruben J. Ramos, Jr., and Ralph R. Caputo of North Jersey, the measure would promote car-sharing programs like the one in Hoboken. Under the bill, car-sharing organizations would be exempt from the $5 surcharge on New Jersey motor vehicle rentals, the Gloucester County Times reports. The surcharge was implemented in 2002.
The bill has headed to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
