TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Students with disabilities are now allowed to bring service animals on school buses in New Jersey.

Gov. Chris Christie signed the measure into law on Monday.

A prior law only allowed students to enter classrooms and school grounds with service animals.

The law permits school officials to ask whether the service animal is required due to a disability and what task or work the animal has been trained to perform.

The law also requires the animal to be under control by a leash, tether or other suitable means at all times.
