A Big WIN for Land Preservation!

On August 4th, the Assembly voted 58 to 9, with one abstention, in favor of the measure to allow voters to decide on the proposed amendment to the state constitution allowing a portion of the state’s corporate business tax to be used for preserving parks, natural lands, farmland, historic sites and flood-prone lands.  The state Senate voted 36 to 1 in favor of placing the question on the election ballot in June.   Thank you to all who made phone calls and sent emails to your representatives.  Thanks to your efforts New Jersey voters will now be able to vote for a stable, long-term source for funding Green Acres, farmland and historic preservation on Tuesday, November 5!
