Speaker Coughlin on Governor’s Lead Remediation and Abatement Proposal Unveiled Today

Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement on the Governor’s proposed plan to address the state’s lead concerns:

“Each of the proposals put forth by Governor Murphy today merit consideration, including the issuance of $500 million in bonds to replace lead service lines and remediate lead paint in homes. I will thoroughly review all proposals that require action by the legislature. We all agree that lead contamination is a serious issue that must be addressed in order to protect New Jersey residents, particularly our children. I look forward to working with the Governor and Senate President as we seek ways to end this crisis.”
