NJ Senate Environment Committee meeting tomorrow

The New Jersey Legislature returns from its summer break tomorrow (September 8) and the Environment and Energy Committee is wasting no time in digging into legislation and issues.

The committee will meet at 10 a.m. in Room 10 of the State House Annex (third floor) in Trenton. 

Representatives of the Department of Environmental Protection and the public have been invited to discuss the status of Senate Bill No. 981 (Smith/Bateman/Greenstein), which revises the "Electronic Waste Management Act."

However, our sources tell us that the DEP has declined the invitation, stating that it is still in the process of discussing possible amendments with electronics manufacturers and the state's recycling community.    

Other bills for consideration:

S-1969  Turner, S.K. (D-15)
Requires NJ Clean Energy Program's Residential New Construction incentives be made available Statewide.
Related Bill: A-223
S-2062  Bateman, C. (R-16)
Appropriates up to $20 million from societal benefits charge to DEP for remediation of lead contamination in drinking water in public buildings.

S-2078  Bateman, C. (R-16); Smith, B. (D-17)
Requires training for pesticide applicators and operators concerning pollinating bees.
Related Bill: A-3400  

S-2468  Lesniak, R.J. (D-20)
Directs DEP to adopt standards for certain drinking water contaminants as recommended by Drink Water Quality Institute.
