New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may sign a revised bill allowing domestic animals to ride public transportation during emergency evacuations as long as the animal is not a threat to public health. An initial version was rejected by Christie, who called for changes such as specifying conditions under which animals will not be allowed on public transportation and language explaining that passengers with service animals receive priority in such situations. The revised measure has cleared the state Assembly and heads to the Senate.
