Following Governor Phil Murphy’s administrative action on fracking, New Jersey LCV Executive Director Ed Potosnak released the following statement:

“Governor Murphy doubled down on protecting drinking water with his administrative action to ban fracking in the Delaware River Watershed. This action shows his commitment to protecting the drinking water of all New Jerseyans, as well as the eco-economy that is so important to towns up and down the Delaware.”

“This has been a banner week for the environment in our state with three executive orders that will begin the process of once again making New Jersey a leader on environmental protection as well as drive the green economy in our state. With these orders, Governor Murphy has shown that the environment is one of his top priorities and that citizens of this state now have an ally in the Governor’s office who will put their interest over polluter profit.”
