******** ACTION ALERT ********

Assembly Must Support Bill for Open Space, Park, Farmland and Historic Preservation Before Deadline - contact your representatives today!

The legislation SCR84/ACR130 would provide continued funding for the incredibly successful Green Acres program, as well as Blue Acres projects to purchase flood-impacted properties in both inland and coastal areas and to protect undeveloped coastal watershed and riparian lands to help prevent future flood damage.  The legislation would also provide sustainable funding for vital farmland and historic preservation efforts. The NJ Senate passed SCR84 with overwhelming bipartisan support June 26, 2014 and July 31 is the last likely opportunity for an Assembly vote before the August 4 deadline.

Please call and email your Assembly Representatives and ask them to attend the July 31 session and support consideration and passage of SCR84/ACR130!  More Information
