TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Employees of many New Jersey school districts may soon be allowed to live out of state with no questions asked.
A state Senate committee on Thursday is considering a bill that would allow employees of school districts in 10 counties near the border with New York or Pennsylvania to live out of state.
It would be a major revision to a 2011 state law that required public workers at all levels of government in New Jersey to live in the state, though it allows waivers for certain circumstances.
Advocates for the change say the residency requirement has made it tougher to recruit educators.
