New Jersey_Report

December 20 Report:

NWRA joined the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) and other like-minded groups and met with New Jersey State Senators and Assemblymembers to discuss the Department of Environmental Protection’s proposed Environmental Justice rules.  While we were all largely supportive of the underlying Environmental Justice Law which these proposed rules seek to implement, our concerns are that the proposal, as currently drafted, will not serve the interests of the communities it seeks to protect, but will rather lead to less economic opportunities, more abandoned properties, with only minimal, if any, environmental and health benefits.
