They've kept their word.


 

Following the fire that made national headlines, Assemblyman John Wisniewski was hoping to brighten the spotlight placed on his state by reintroducing the New Home Fire Safety Act. The bill calls for the sprinklering of all new, one- and two-family homes. The Assembly approved the bill in February, and it recently passed the state's Senate with a 22-13 vote, per the Burlington County Times.
