In 2007, I was proud to sponsor New Jersey’s “Global Warming Response Act”. Twelve years later, I believe that our state laws must continue to grow and adapt with science. I am proud that Governor Murphy recently signed my legislation (A4821) into law which updates the Global Warming Response Act of 2007, bringing it in line with our current understanding of climate change.
“It is critical that our state laws adapt with science. Global warming and the science surrounding it is constantly evolving, we are always learning about new developments and discoveries ... Previously, New Jersey was not adequately factoring in the emission of these pollutants but under this new law, New Jersey’s response will be more strategic and conscientious.”
