Corrado measure that would cut government red tape for surviving spouses signed into law

NEW JERSEY – Governor Murphy signed legislation Monday sponsored by Senator Kristin Corrado that allows the surviving spouse of a decedent to use their motor vehicle until the vehicle registration expires.

“I’m glad this bill was signed into law today. The last thing someone needs to worry about after the death of a loved one is a trip to the motor vehicle commission,” said Corrado (R-40). “This commonsense legislation will remove unnecessary government red tape and allow surviving spouses to use their decedent’s vehicle until the registration expires.”

Under previous law, a surviving spouse could operate a motor vehicle under a decedent’s registration certificate for 30 days.

Corrado’s legislation, S-3424/A-1550, allows the surviving spouse, or other family member, to operate the decedent’s vehicle until the registration expires.
