Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande offer the following statement regarding the most recent law introduced to abolish COAH:

“On Monday, Assemblyman Gerald Green introduced a bill that would abolish the New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing, which we have long advocated. Unfortunately, unlike Senate Bill S-1, which passed the State Senate in June, Assemblyman Green’s bill calls for more of a burden to be placed on municipalities and businesses. Given the current economic climate, this is the wrong choice for New Jersey.

By bringing together experts from all equine and equine-related industries in New Jersey, as well as legislators from both sides of the aisle who believe in a future for horse racing in our State, we were able to create a full picture of exactly how vital this industry is to the economy in New Jersey.”

Senator Jennifer Beck (R-12) expressed disappointment that an effort to amend A-2740 to include the immediate repeal of teen driver decals was blocked by the Senate Democratic majority. The amendment, offered by Senator Tom Goodwin (R-14), was blocked in an 18-17 vote.

“I have heard repeatedly from my constituents that they do not support the teen driver decal requirement that was implemented as part of Kyleigh’s Law,” said Beck. “While the law was meant to keep young drivers safe, many teens and their parents feel like it puts them at increased risk.”

The 12th District Legislators are extremely proud to announce that today at Fort Monmouth, Governor Chris Christie signed the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority Act into law, creating the entity that will oversee the redevelopment of the Fort Monmouth property after the military moves its operations to Maryland in 2011.

“Through ongoing negotiations,” said Senator Jennifer Beck, “we were able to secure more than 40 amendments to this bill, making it far more palatable to the residents and municipal and county leaders. The amendments include mandating that five members of the nine member board are residents of Monmouth County and incorporating strict pay-to-play and conflict of interest regulations that will apply to developers, vendors and board members. In the end, we created the best possible policy by keeping ourselves open to input from the local, county and State levels.”
