NJ Assembly Approves Gas Station Power Bill

New Jersey lawmakers have approved a bill that would allow gas stations to get zero-interest loans to pay for wiring stations to generators.

The state Assembly passed the measure Monday. It now heads to the Senate.

Proponents say the measure would help prevent another gas crisis like the one after Superstorm Sandy.

Fuel industry leaders have supported the bill, but stress the need to also focus on delivery issues that plagued motor fuel operations following the storm.

The measure would create a two-year pilot program that would provide loans for up to 10 years and $10,000.

Under the bill, qualified gas stations would be those on or near the Atlantic City Expressway, the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike and other roads considered evacuation routes.
