Bill Repealing New Jersey’s Residency Law for Teachers

S2169 is a bill just out of the Senate State Government Committee; its goal is to rescind the requirement that school district employees in New Jersey must reside in New Jersey. It applies to those counties that border New York and Pennsylvania. It is very specific in its intent as it does not apply to police, firefighters, or college professors;  it is strictly geared for teachers at the K-12 level. Here is a Star-Ledger editorial advocating the repeal of the entire law – the New Jersey First Act.
