Please sign my petition supporting an effort organized by some of the top environmentalists to put a question on the ballot next year allowing New Jersey residents to dedicate all funds from polluter damages to restoring the environment.

No matter how much money New Jersey wins in damages from corporate polluters, there’s a cap on the amount that goes to restore local communities where the contamination happens.
 
 
 
 
That means after communities victimized by industrial pollution, they are also being cheated because politicians can divert money to completely unrelated projects or use it to cover budget shortfalls.

We should dedicate all funds from polluter damages to restoring the environment and compensating the public, because the awards won in court should not be robbed for political expediency.

The first step in getting it on the ballot is convincing Senate and Assembly leaders to bring the issue to a vote by December 31, so I am sponsoring a petition to tell legislative leaders to take action now.
