PINELANDS COMMISSION MINUTES VETOED BY CHRISTIE

gov_christieGov. Chris Christie took a rare step this week, vetoing minutes from the Pinelands Commission. In the meeting, the commission voted to give themselves a five percent raise. By vetoing the minutes, that and other actions are voided. Some environmentalist believe this is payback for the commission voting not to move forward with a natural gas pipeline to Upper Township through the Pinelands. This move was hailed by environmentalist but many locally crushed the decision.
