For four decades NJEL has done just that for its members and for New Jersey. On issues as varied as clean water regulations, vehicle emissions enforcement,
open space preservation, and increasing the use of renewable energy, NJEL lobbied for laws and regulations that protected New Jersey’s natural resources and
the health of its residents.
NJEL continues to do that as new threats to the environment emerge and as special interests try to roll back decades of progress. Wastewater brought to New Jersey from out-of-state gas fracking operations—a Federal plan for oil drilling along the Atlantic coast—evidence that plastic litter is entering the food chain—NJEL is informing its members of the FACTS and speaking up to lawmakers and public officials, as it always has.
