The Associated Press’ Mike Catalini takes a closer look at New Jersey’s new push to sue for environmental damages. “New Jersey’s new push to sue people and companies responsible for pollution has environmental groups applauding and business interests raising questions and concerns,”Catalini writes.
Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced a half-dozen new lawsuits and said former Gov. Chris Christie’s administration didn’t pursue any such new suits over eight years.
NJBIA’s Michele Siekerka summed up the business community’s concerns with the policy shift: “Overzealous enforcement or looking for ‘gotchas’ in a morass of sometimes complex regulations can cause unnecessary burdens on well-intended companies,” she said.
