New homes in New Jersey might need to have fire sprinklers.

A Senate committee on Monday approved the measure. It awaits a vote in the chamber.

The measure would apply to newly constructed homes. It would not apply to mobile homes or homes not connected to a public water system.

Supporters of the bill say it would save lives. 

Opponents say the requirement would drive up costs and make it more difficult for residents to build homes.
