In Trenton: Third try for Pinelands nominee; Enviro bills

** CORRECTION - The Judiciary Committee meets at noon on Tuesday, Feb 24**

Maybe the third time’s the charm for Robert Barr whose controversial nomination by NJ Governor Chris Christie to the Pinelands Commission was scheduled by the Senate Judiciary Committee for a vote two previous occasions but not called.


The Barr nomination is listed for consideration again on Monday, Feb. 23, when the committee meets in Trenton.

Why is the nomination causing a fuss?  
Robert Barr


Columb Higgins provides the answer in this Ocean City Gazette piece written after the committee skipped over the  nomination for the second time on January 26, 2015:

Barr’s nomination to Pinelands Commission delayed again

Also on the Judiciary agenda is the nomination of Jeffrey Link of Franklinville, for an additional term on the state's Fish and Game Council.
