Strengthening efforts to protect resident interest in New Jersey Shores and guard marine life and endangered species, a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Nancy Pinkin, Andrew Zwicker and Joann Downey received final legislative approval on Monday, passing the full Assembly by a vote tally of 71-7-2.
