GREEN APPLAUDS COURT DECISION STAYING CHRISTIE’S 90-DAY COAH SUSPENSION

(TRENTON) — After reading a Friday appellate court decision to stay the enactment of the portion of Gov. Chris Christie’s Executive Order No. 12 that would have suspended operations of the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) for 90 days, Assembly Speaker Pro Tempore Jerry Green issued the following statement:

“Creating a workable affordable housing plan – especially in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the union – will take teamwork, compromise and the combined efforts of the Executive and Legislative branches of government.

“As the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee chair, I look forward to working with Governor Christie on a viable, bipartisan solution to New Jersey’s COAH problem that will pass judicial muster and I hope to have a hearing on this matter on March 4.”
