Ed Potosnak, executive director of New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, released the following statement today on the SCR134, aka the Green Amendment, passing Senate Energy and Environment Committee:

"New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is excited to see the Green Amendment move forward, and we look forward to a future where our clean drinking water and clean air is a constitutional right for all businesses and families in our state. New Jersey voters have proven time and time again that when they show up to vote, they vote for the environment. With New Jersey LCV's leadership on the important 2017 Natural Resource Damages constitutional amendment, which passed with overwhelming voter approval, we stand ready to make clean water, air, and lands a constitutional right. The Green Amendment will be another win for environmental voters."

New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to elect environmental champions, hold public officials accountable, and support laws which protect our environment and improve the quality of people’s lives.
