Assembly Panel Approves Conaway Bill Package to Identify, Address & Minimize Exposure to Lead in Soil & Water StatewideAn Assembly panel on Thursday approved a comprehensive three-bill package sponsored by Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Jr., M.D. designed to help New Jersey identify, address and minimize the exposure to lead in water and soil statewide.
"Given the finite resources of the state of New Jersey, it is important for us to have a data-driven, science-based plan to evaluate the priorities for lead remediation," said Conaway (D-Burlington). "If enacted these bills would help the state guard against the hazards and hysteria that we saw unfold in Flint Michigan throughout their water quality crisis."
