“I am extremely pleased this bill was signed into law today. These small, but important updates to the advertising guidelines of the alarm and locksmith industries are long overdue,” said Singer (R-30). “Virtually every successful business, whether small or large, has a functioning website. There is simply no need to require license number information in ads—the business web address is more than satisfactory. This legislation will help cut red tape for our local businesses and encourage a more streamlined advertising production process.”

“Due to New Jersey’s strict regulations concerning forever chemicals, water companies in the state are required by the DEP to engage in mitigation measures when any water well exceeds, or is expected to exceed, the maximum contaminant level for PFAS,” said Schepisi (R-39). “These measures can be extremely costly for small, municipally-owned water companies and can impair the ability of those companies to provide an adequate supply of water to the communities they serve. Many pre-existing wells exist on municipally-owned properties that are encumbered by Green Acres and are prohibited from constructing the very treatment vessels that are required. This legislation would address the issue by allowing certain exemptions from Green Acres regulations.”

“Composting has significant economic benefits for those in the agricultural industry,” said Durr (R-3). “Farmers who use compost actually spend far less money on expensive fertilizers and pesticides, water, and irrigation. That savings can then be reinvested in the local economy or used to make improvements on the farm. My legislation will not only recognize the importance of composting, but will further encourage the practice by businesses and individuals.”
