Mazzeo Introduces Measures to Advance Offshore Wind Energy Plan for Atlantic CityAssemblyman Vince Mazzeo has introduced legislation to urge the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) to follow through on a plan to promote offshore wind energy in Atlantic City.
"We have the opportunity to make our state a leader in the wind energy industry and put men and women in the Atlantic City region back to work. It's disappointing that the only thing that's been standing in the way for the past four and a half years is the BPU," said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic).
Benson Introduces Legislation to Prohibit Hotels from Interfering with Guests’ Wireless Networking ServicesAssemblyman Daniel Benson has introduced legislation that would prohibit hotels from interfering with wireless networking services in light of recent attempts by large hotel chains to block guests from using their own wireless Internet devices.
"By blocking a customer's access to their own private networks, hotels are attempting to limit consumer choice while making a profit," said Benson (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "This bill will prevent hotels from claiming ownership over wireless systems that merely pass through their properties."
