LEGISLATURE VOTES TOMORROW
TO REVOKE DEP'S WEAKENED
HIGHLANDS SEPTIC DENSITY RULE!
 
 
 
 
 
This is it! The final nail in the coffin of the Christie administration's attempt to weaken the rules that establish the minimum lot sizes required to build a new residential unit in the Highlands Preservation Area, which the Administration had reduced from 88 to 23 acres in a forested area.  After having found in an earlier concurrent resolution that the rule change violated the intent of the 2004 Highlands Act, both the Senate and the Assembly will vote tomorrow on the concurrent resolution that under the New Jersey Constitution, will invalidate the rule change.  
 
 
 
 
CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS TODAY, ASK THEM TO VOTE IN FAVOR OF SCR-163 (IN THE SENATE) AND ACR-255 (IN THE ASSEMBLY)!
 
 
 
 
Find you Legislator here, alphabetically, or by municipality. Even if your Legislators are not supporters of the Highlands, let them know you are. If your Legislators are Senator Bob Smith, Senator Bateman, Senator Greenstein, Assemblyman McKeon, or Assemblyman Eustace, thank them for sponsoring the concurrent resolution.
 
 
 
 
 
Thank you!
