NJ Assembly Republicans Defy Statehouse’s Proof of Vax Requirement After Standoff with State Troopers

New Jersey state troopers blocked Republicans Assembly members from entering the statehouse in Trenton on Thursday before Republicans defied the rule and entered the Assembly chamber. A new coronavirus policy that went into effect Wednesday, which requires proof of vaccination or a negative coronavirus test from those who wish to enter the statehouse, was the catalyst for the conundrum.
