New Jersey bills address loading delays at ports, road safety

A couple of bills in the New Jersey statehouse are intended to improve port operations and safety on roadways. Truckers forced to wait in line at ports to load or unload are the subject of a bill offered by Assemblyman John Wisniewski, D-Middlesex. The bill - A1023 - would prohibit ports from making a truck wait longer than 30 minutes before beginning loading or off-loading container cargo at a terminal.
