The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and the Assembly Budget Committee yesterday approved. by significant majorities,  bill A3901/S1858, which would let the voters of NJ decide the fate of the GSPT bond referendum. While the bill approved yesterday did decrease the proposed funding from $600 million to $400 million,  the advance of the current version would provide desperately-needed stop gap funding for the state’s open space, historic preservation, and farmland preservation financing program. The bill is now scheduled to be heard on the floor of both houses this Thursday, June 25. PNJ urges you to CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS today and tomorrow to once again voice your support for GSPT, the state’s only source of funding for historic preservation!
