McKeon Bill Concerning Wheel Weights, Cutting Down on Lead, Mercury Pollution in New Jersey Clears Senate Panel

(TRENTON) - Legislation Assemblyman John McKeon sponsored to prohibit the installation and sale of wheel weights and the sale of new motor vehicles tires containing lead or mercury weights was advanced by the Senate Environment and Energy Committee on Monday.

Lead and mercury weights commonly are used in replacement tires to balance wheels and tires. Mercury wheel balancing products are made for use with large wheels found on semi tractors and trailers, as well as larger recreational vehicles and buses. Wheel weights are fastened to automobile rims in order to balance tires and prevent uneven tire wear.

McKeon, Vainieri Huttle Bill to Keep State Parks Open During Government Shutdown Advances

(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats John F. McKeon and Valerie Vainieri Huttle to require state parks and certain areas to remain open for the first seven days of a state government shutdown was advanced on Monday by the Senate Environment and Energy Committee.

"While families were being asked to vacate their camping trips at state parks on a national holiday weekend, the Governor took the opportunity to enjoy a state-owned beach front property," said McKeon (D- Essex, Morris). "Families were grossly inconvenienced by the unexpected government shutdown and that should never happen again. This legislation will prevent any further disruption of services, during a government shutdown, for families who wish to spend July 4th weekend at a state park or forest or just taking in historic sites."
