New Jersey bill lowers beach tag prices for services members and their families

    The New Jersey Assembly has approved unanimously a bill that would let beach towns charge active service and National Guard members less for beach tags.

    Discounts would also apply to families.
    The bill, which passed the state Senate in February, would give towns the option to charge less for military service members, and would require towns to keep track of how many people use the discount, the Press of Atlantic City reports. Currently, disabled residents can buy discounted tags and children under 12 are free.
