TRENTON, N.J. -- New Jersey lawmakers are set to address the issue of small things coming in big packages.
The Legislature's Environmental and Solid Waste committee will consider a bill Monday that would fine retailers if they use shipping boxes that are more than twice the size of the item being shipped.
