For the past 10 years, developers and their friends in Trenton have made repeated attempts to overdevelop New Jersey's most precious open spaces.
Known as The Permit Extension Acts, this legislation aims to extend previously expired permits on construction projects from as far back as the 1990's well into the future. It avoids adhering to modern environmental and public health safeguards that were adopted over the past decade to better protect our water and apply lessons learned from recent severe flooding, snow and wind events like Super Storm Sandy.
Tomorrow, Thursday, Dec. 18, both houses of the NJ Legislature are expected to vote on S2551/A3815, the 4th Permit Extension Act (PEA IV). Urge your legislators and legislative leadership to VOTE NO because it fails to protect our water and keep people out of harm's way!
