Environment and Animal Welfare


This bill, to be known as the Preserve New Jersey Act, would implement the constitutional dedication of Corporation Business Tax (CBT) revenues for open space, farmland, and historic preservation. Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 84 (SCS) of 2014, or “Ballot Question No. 2,” presented to, and approved by, the voters of the State on November 4, 2014, amended the New Jersey Constitution to dedicate four percent of CBT revenues for open space, farmland, and historic preservation, water programs, public and private site remediation, and underground storage tank programs for fiscal years 2016 through 2019, and further increased the annual dedication for certain environmental programs from four percent to six percent commencing in fiscal year 2020 and thereafter.
