Legislation Assembly Democrats Tim Eustace, Andrew Zwicker, Valerie Vainieri Huttle, Reed Gusciora, James Kennedy and Daniel Benson sponsored to require New Jersey's full participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative gained General Assembly approval on Monday.

"From the very beginning, we believed that entering into agreements with other states would further the purposes of Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the Global Warming Response Act," said Eustace (D-Bergen/Passaic). "The governor's withdrawal from RGGI blatantly disregarded the importance of our participation in RGGI to reducing greenhouse gas emission in our state. A return to the RGGI pact with full participation will get New Jersey back on the right environmental track."

Assembly Democratic Bill Establishing State Goal to Reduce Food Waste in NJ Clears Assembly Panel

Bill Sponsored by Assembly members Pamela Lampitt, Annette Quijano, Tim Eustace, James Kennedy, Dan Benson, Elizabeth Muoio and Andrew Zwicker
(TRENTON) - An Assembly panel released on Thursday legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Pamela Lampitt, Annette Quijano, Tim Eustace, James Kennedy, Dan Benson, Elizabeth Muoio and Andrew Zwicker to establish a statewide food waste reduction goal of fifty percent by 2030.

"Food waste is a major issue nationally and globally," said Lampitt (D- Camden, Burlington). "Unwanted and discarded food squanders water, land, energy, labor, and capital resources. When food waste is dumped in a land fill, it rots and creates methane, a very hazardous greenhouse gas. We should begin to look at alternatives to ridding surplus food, especially if it is still unspoiled, than just tossing it in a landfill."

RGGI is a cooperative effort among nine states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Governor Chris Christie withdrew from the program early in his first term.

"From the very beginning we believed that entering into agreements with other states will further the purposes of Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the "Global Warming Response Act," said Eustace (D-Bergen, Passaic). "The Governor's withdrawal from RGGI blatantly disregarded the importance of our participation in RGGI is to reducing greenhouse gas emission in our state. A return to the RGGI pact with full participation will get New Jersey back on the right environmental track."
