Appellants oppose ruling, anticipate appeal

The 28 environmental and labor organizations promised to keep fighting despite the ruling by the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey to uphold the NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s Waiver Rule. The groups issued the following joint statement:

“We are greatly disappointed by the ruling issued by the Appellate Court today, and believe the rule should be overturned. Despite the Court’s ruling and the slow trickle of waiver applications submitted thus far, the rule, once finalized, will open the floodgates to wash away environmental protections and represents an overreach of executive power.”
