TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey legislative panel has advanced a bill that might help people seeing red over the price of ink.

The bill would require sellers of printers to display the average per-page cost of printing and ink-sellers to say how many pages a cartridge would produce.

It was advanced Thursday by the Assembly’s consumer affairs committee with three Democrats voting yes and two Republicans voting no.

One of the prime sponsors is Democrat Paul Moriarty Washington Township, who was a television consumer affairs reporter before going into politics.

He says customers often don’t know how much printing will cost when they buy printers.
