VAINIERI HUTTLE: CHRISTIE VETO OF GRADUATED DRIVER’S LICENSE STUDY MAKES NO SENSE

(TRENTON) – Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) released the following statement Thursday after Gov. Chris Christie vetoed her legislation to require the Attorney General to conduct a six-month study and report on changes to New Jersey’s graduated driver’s license system:

“The governor’s veto makes no sense.
“The law already requires the Attorney General to review the graduated driver’s license changes, but we were seeking an earlier answer to help respond to concerns by New Jersey parents and teen-agers.
“Yet with this veto, the governor has rejected a six-month study, just so he can order another six-month study anyway.
“Rest assured, I will be vigilant in ensuring the latest six-month is completed thoroughly and on time.”
