Related Legislation and Other Resources


Climate actions in New Jersey are governed by two overarching pieces of State Legislation; N.J.S.A. 26:2C-37, et seq, known as the Global Warming Response Act, and N.J.S.A. 26:2C-45, et seq, sometimes referred to as the Global Warming Solutions Fund Act. The Global Warming Solutions Fund Act provides the statutory authority for both the CO2 Budget Trading Program and the Global Warming Solutions Fund rules. The NJ Legislature Web Site offers New Jersey Statutes online. Select the link for Statutes on their Website and use the site's lookup options if you would like to access the statutory authority.
