Connell Foley attorneys Jacquelyn Corsentino, an Associate in the firm's Environmental Law Group, and Agnes Antonian, Co-chair of the Group, authored the article "The Regulatory Next Steps in Gov. Murphy’s ʹPACTʹ to Address Climate Change" for the New Jersey Law Journal.
The article discusses the regulatory steps the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) plans to implement as part of the Protecting Against Climate Threats initiative (“NJ PACT”) that was created after Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 100 in January 2020. The executive order tasked NJDEP with undertaking comprehensive regulatory reform to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and address climate impacts within the state. The NJDEP seeks to formally propose six new rules within the April 2021 New Jersey Register: 1) flood control measures; 2) electric generating units; 3) commercial and industrial boilers; 4) liquid heavy fuels; 5) medium- and heavy-duty vehicles; and 6) cargo equipment.
