Corzine taking the soft line on NJ pollution

From Courier Post online:

TRENTON — The environmental groups fell all over themselves endorsing Jon Corzine for governor three years ago, but they’re singing a new tune now.

“Everyone agrees the clean-up program is broken but rather than addressing the root of the problem, a poorly funded and staffed program, the Corzine administration would let the fox watch the henhouse,” said Dave Pringle of the NJ Environmental Federation.

He refers to proposed legislation that would permit polluters and developers to hire their own consultants to sign off on toxic waste sites. Admit it, that’s so Jersey.

Even worse, that is like allowing peanut distributors to decide what peanut products to ship, or to allow Jersey tomato growers to decide which laws they would like to comply with.
