11 Mar: Senate Grants Final Legislative Approval To Smith/Gordon/Beach Bill Enhancing Development Rights For Highlands Property

TRENTON – The full Senate today approved a bill sponsored by Senators Bob Smith, Bob Gordon and James Beach that would help foster smart development throughout the state while broadening the options for owners of protected property in the Highlands to sell their development rights.

“This bill will help benefit the property owners in the Highlands region who have made sacrifices in order to help us protect the drinking water for more than half of the residents in our state,” said Sen. Smith (D-Middlesex, Somerset).
