Today, the State Senate held a rare August voting session. The Upper House considered 16 bills. One that received final legislative approval and now heads to Governor Chris Christie gives the State Attorney General six months to study and report on the graduated driver's license program.

There has been some controversy over a new law that requires younger drivers to place decals on their license plates to make it easier for police to know if they're driving at the wrong time or if they have too many passengers in the car. Opponents claim the decals make teens targets for predators.

There were pension reform bills considered as well environment-related legislation. The amazing thing is; from start to finish the entire session lasted roughly 25 minutes. I don't know if I've ever seen so many lawmakers in one room who didn't feel the need to talk at length. About anything.
