Some New Jersey lawmakers want to make it mandatory for elementary school students to get 20 minutes of recess.

According to NJ.com,

In an effort to promote social skills like cooperation, communication, and creativity, as well as physical activity, the state’s Senate and Assembly have unanimously passed legislation that would require a 20-minute daily recess for all students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

If signed by Gov. Chris Christie, the proposal would take effect next school year.

Most schools already have recess, but the bill would make it mandatory.  Also, the playing time could not be taken away as a punishment, except in a bullying case.
