New Jersey Governor Should Sign Bill Barring Illicit Ivory Sales

Published 06/18/14

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has on his desk a bill to ban sale and purchase of illegal ivory in New Jersey. The legislation, sponsored by Senator Raymond Lesniak, cleared the Assembly Monday. This bill would prohibit the purchase, sale, and possession with intent to sell any illicit ivory product or rhinoceros horns. Exemption would be allowed for the transfer to legal beneficiaries of legitimately-obtained ivory. Born Free USA commended the action of the New Jersey legislature, warning that certain elephant populations could be extinct within a decade.
