06 Dec: Kenny Bill To Make Water And Sewer Connections Affordable

TRENTON – The Senate today approved a bill sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Bernard F. Kenny Jr. to provide 50 percent reductions in sewer and water fees charged to new connections for units built by public housing authorities and non-profit organizations building affordable housing projects.

“The Supreme Court has made it clear that municipalities have an affirmative obligation to provide the infrastructure needed to make affordable housing realistically possible,” said Senator Kenny, D-Hudson.
