"As a result of the recent recession, once-approved permits are in danger of expiring or lapsing because gaining permit extensions is difficult and costly, and developers do not have the resources to obtain extensions," said Green (D-Middlesex/Somerset/Union). "By extending permits with this bill, we can prevent a waste of public and private resources."
