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.
