(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assemblymen Paul Moriarty and Gilbert "Whip" Wilson to boost oversight of hazardous materials coming into South Jersey's ports and roadways has been signed into law.
The measure (S-1816/A-2763) will grant police officers of the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) the power to inspect hazardous materials carriers and cargoes.
"There is no such thing as being too vigilant in this day and age," said Moriarty (D-Camden/Gloucester). "DRPA police are already trained in this specialty, so it seems counterintuitive not to grant them the authority to oversee potentially hazardous materials coming into our waters."
