TRENTON —  Legislation that would extend the state’s vehicle lemon law to new farm equipment has cleared the Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee.

The bill would apply to new motor vehicle farm equipment purchased or leased in New Jersey.

Its sponsors include Democratic Assemblymen John Burzichelli of Paulsboro and Celeste Riley of Bridgeton.

“Consumers are protected financially if they’re vehicles turn out to be a lemon, and farmers should get the same consideration,” Burzichelli said.
