Governor Murphy needs to show us that he is genuinely committed to protecting the Pinelands National Reserve. 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 three 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.

The federal seat on New Jersey’s Pinelands Commission has been vacant for over four years. Ask U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Deb Haaland, to fill this seat as soon as possible. The federal appointee to the Pinelands Commission plays a critical role in protecting the Pinelands National Reserve. We can’t afford to leave this seat empty any longer.
