TRENTON – The bill that sought to prioritize financial assistance eligibility for the Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund drew a conditional veto today.
A2395/S1246 is not comprehensive enough, Gov. Chris Christie said in his veto message.
The bill would have elevated the priority of some brownfields sites, but Christie said a broader approach is needed to ensure contaminated sites throughout the state benefit.
He urged sponsors to craft a bill with input from the Department of Environmental Protection and the Economic Development Authority – which co-administer the fund – to ensure long-term financial health of the fund as well as continued investigation and remediation.
Dissed by Gov. Chris Christie, New York Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino said Christie should consider stepping down from his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Assocation.Read More >

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
