The New Jersey Senate on Monday gave final legislative approval to a bill that is intended to promote pay equity for women by prohibiting employers from asking prospective employees about their wage histories.

The bill, A3480, passed the Senate in a 30-9 vote. The Assembly passed the bill in a 49-19 vote in May. Both votes were split along party lines, with a handful of Republican legislators voting against the bill. It now goes to Republican Gov. Chris Christie for consideration.
