SENATE COMMUNITY AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
SENATE, No. 2121
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: DECEMBER 11, 1997
The Senate Community Affairs Committee reports favorably Senate Bill No. 2121.
This bill would remove from the statutes an offensive reference to the Roma and Sinti ethnic groups, commonly referred to as gypsies. No other ethnic group is singled out in the statutes for special licensing treatment by a municipality and subsection k. of R.S.40:52-1 probably would be unenforceable if tested in the courts.
