TRENTON – The following statement is from Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, congratulating Assemblyman Jim Kennedy in his new role as chair of the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee.
"We congratulate Assemblyman Kennedy on his appointment to Chair of the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee. He has a pro-conservation track record on our Legislative Scorecard and is a champion for the environment,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey LCV. “We look forward to continuing to work with Chairman Kennedy on critical legislation to address climate change, advance environmental justice, and protecting clean drinking water through chemical safety reforms like restricting the use of bee-killing pesticides.
