Does Pa have reciprocity with NJ regarding underage drinking as of 2013 regarding license suspension

Kutztown, PA |

While at a party, I walked outside and was confronted by police officers, they had me identify who I was. Since I was underage I was cited for an underage, now being that law states in PA about fine/ 90 day license suspension. Does that mean that since I am a New Jersey Resident that my "New Jersey issued" license will be suspended? I am very confused over the actual law, and cannot get a straight answer on this. I am aware there are lawyers on both sides of the state lines, so I am curious if I can get a clear answer on this.
(I have heard a new law was passed Jan. 1 of 2013) so older cases may not be applicable)
Thanks in advance
