TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Birthdays might mean a trip to the Motor Vehicle Commission for some New Jersey drivers under legislation advancing in the state Senate.

The Budget Committee on Thursday signed off on the measure that changes driver’s license expiration dates from the last day of the month every four years to the driver’s birthday.

The legislation is going forward after Gov. Chris Christie suggested the change in August as a way to ease wait times at the state’s MVC offices. The change was among a number of recommendations, including the elimination of online transaction fees that Christie proposed in response to customer service complaints.

A similar bill has been introduced in the Assembly.

If the senate committee gives its approval, the legislation will go before the full Senate for consideration.
