The ecological health of the Pinelands and integrity of all independent commissions is under attack. On Thursday, March 5, NJ Senators are voting on the nomination of Robert Barr to the Pinelands Commission. Urge Senators to oppose this nomination - a political appointment designed to help push through a bad pipeline project in the Pinelands (that the Commission voted AGAINST last year).
Clean Water Action's 29th Annual Conference, entititled #Act4CleanWater, is being held Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 8:30-5:00 pm at Brookdale Community College's Warner Student Life Center, Lot #7, Arena Drive, Lincroft, NJ.
The conference will feature:
Liberty Natural Gas (Liberty LNG) is once again trying to place a hazardous LNG port (called "Port Ambrose") off the NY/NJ coast (the project was vetoed in 2011 by Gov. Christie) -- just 28 miles from Sandy Hook and 18 miles off Jones Beach, NY.
Liberty LNG is proposing to create a deepwater port that would bring combustible liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers to the NY/NJ region. Under the Deepwater Port Act, this LNG facility could be used for both import and export.

Thanks to the support of Clean Water Action New Jersey members, we had over 50 legislators sign on to co-sponsor the Safe Playing Fields Act (S541/A2143) this year.
Unfortunately, despite these co-sponsors and the support of parents throughout the state, the vote on this bill continues to be delayed. We need to send NJ legislators the message that ignoring children's health is unacceptable. Urge your legislators to pass the bill now.
