TRENTON – The Assembly acted on several bills.
S3089/A4309, the N.J. Food Access bill to address the problem of supermarket-deprived neighborhoods, passed 60-21-3.
The measure will use Urban Enterprise Zone sales tax funds for five years to implement the effort.
S3156/A4335, an extension period for wastewater agencies, passed 56-14-3.
This bill would extend, for a prescribed “extension period,” the requirement for wastewater management planning agencies to prepare and submit a wastewater management plan or a wastewater management update to the Department of Environmental Protection and would maintain during the extension period the validity of wastewater service areas and sewer service areas.
The Senate passed it earlier but environmentalists oppose the bill.
