New law provides easier beach access for military personnel
Veterans and other armed forces personnel can now use their military identification to gain access to certain beaches in New Jersey.
The measure was signed Monday by Gov. Chris Christie.
The bill permits military personnel, veterans, their spouses and dependent children over the age of 12 to use their military identification for beach access instead of having to pay for a beach tag.
The bill was passed last year by the state Senate and the Assembly.
