N.J. vote on state song put off
TRENTON, N.J. -- New Jersey lawmakers are singing the same old tune -- nothing.
They put off a vote Monday on choosing four state songs, leaving the state the only one without an official ditty.
A state Senate panel considered a bill that would have adopted an official state anthem, children's song, popular song and ballad.
Efforts to adopt a state song date to 1960. The committee didn't say when it would discuss the measure again.
New Jersey has struggled with its identity before. It held an ultimately unsuccessful contest in 2005 to determine a state slogan.
