Governor Murphy needs to show us that he is genuinely committed to protecting the Pinelands National Reserve. The April 29th court decision denying the legal challenges to the Southern Reliability Link pipeline is just another decision in a long line of decisions and inaction that threatens the survival of the Pinelands. The Pinelands Commission is the guardian of the rules that protect the Pinelands but it has become a shell of its former self. It is severely weakened and unwilling to defend the Pinelands and enforce the rules that were created 40 years ago. The Governor nominated qualified candidates to serve on the Pinelands Commission more than two years ago. He hasn’t done what it takes to get his nominees confirmed by the State Senate, which has simply ignored them. These seats remain empty, and a number of sitting members show they have no interest in conservation. Take Action Today. This email action is for NJ residents only.
