TRENTON, N.J. — The new year in New Jersey will bring a ban on smoking at public beaches, a state mandate for health insurance and the ability for courts to take away guns from people who pose a danger.
Those are among the approximately two dozen new laws set to take effect in 2019. A handful of them grabbed headlines when they were enacted.
One measure that drew attention will make it easier for transgender residents to amend their birth certificates.
