Trenton, NJ - A broad coalition of environmental, community, labor and faith-based groups from around the state are calling on members of the New Jersey Legislature to put in place protections against toxic fracking waste. The Legislature passed the bill in June, but Gov. Christie announced his veto of the bill on Friday. The legislation bans the disposal, treatment, and discharge of waste created through the process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, for natural gas, and can still be put in place if the Legislature overrides the Governor's veto. At the campaign launch, the coalition unveiled the new symbol for the campaign, a dump truck meeting STOP signs.
