Lawmakers wrap-up for 2014

The Assembly and Senate held voting sessions yesterday on numerous bills which now head to the Governor for action.  The Water Infrastructure Protection Act (A-3628) passed the Senate by one vote and now awaits the Governor’s action.  The bill would allow municipalities and public authorities to sell distressed water systems to private entities.  The Legislature also cleared the Permit Extension Act of 2008 (A-3815) which extends expiration dates for certain NJDEP permits and local approvals for another two years.  Legislation which exempts certain individuals from licensing requirements under the Residential Mortgage Act also heads to the Governor (A-1784).  A bill requiring the purchase of products produced in the United States for public contracts also cleared the Legislature.  The bill, known as the “Made in America” bill (S-1811), was opposed by most business groups including CIANJ.  To view the complete list of bills, see here.
