Trenton, NJ - Today Press Secretary Michael Drewniak issued the following statement:
"It is time for the Assembly to finish the job of eliminating the Council on Affordable Housing, reforming New Jersey's outdated and ineffective affordable housing rules and permanently repealing the 2.5 percent commercial development fee. The Senate overwhelmingly passed bipartisan legislation that accomplishes these goals. We urge the Assembly to pass legislation that meets these same objectives, lifting arbitrary mandates on municipalities, rehabilitating substandard housing and eliminating the Council on Affordable Housing. Any legislation that falls short of these goals falls short entirely."
