Governor Christie commits $10 million for lead abatement
Yesterday Governor Christie announced that $10 million will be allocated in the existing 2016 budget for lead remediation for low- and middle-income homes. ACNJ has worked with other advocates to support legislation initiated by Senator Ronald L. Rice to adequately finance the Lead Hazard Control Assistance Fund. ACNJ thanks the Governor for restoring this funding.
