Legislative Stakeholders


Legislative Reform Stakeholder Process

On October 23, 2006, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Lisa Jackson presented testimony [pdf 68 Kb] before the Senate Environment Committee on Needed Reforms to the Site Remediation Program. Public testimony was also provided on November 27, 2006 by members of various constituent organizations. In response to that testimony, Senator Robert Smith asked the Commissioner to convene a stakeholder group to frame out the legislative issues and make recommendations to the legislature.

Assistant Commissioner Irene Kropp organized the stakeholder group to provide input on NJDEP recommendations for legislation for the up coming legislative session.
