State Sen. Barbara Buono says New Jerseyans who don’t have computers at home would have to register for work at a library or career center to fulfill the new requirement.Buono says the jobless may not have easy access to public computers and she says libraries in cities like Trenton have closed or seen their hours reduced.

The new rule clarifies the responsibility of the unemployed to actively look for work and allows benefits to be suspended for any week in which a claimant doesn’t seek a new job.

The Labor Department says it would be flexible for people who don’t have Internet access.
