NJAA Supports Permit Extension Act Renewal for the Nine Counties Most Heavily Impacted by Hurricane Sandy

NJAA supported A-3617 (Green/Rible) S-2390 (Sarlo/Kyrillos), which would renew, for another year, the Permit Extension Act of 2008 for the nine counties most heavily impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Due to the tolling period for such permits, permits extended by the legislation would be valid through June 30, 2017, when they would again expire. The bill was heard in committee and is expected to be voted on in both the Senate and the Assembly before recessing for the summer. NJAA supported these measures in committee as they will allow projects that were conceived before the economic downturn to happen now that economic conditions are more favorable.
