Governor Chris Christie Sued over Her Administration’s Waiver Rule

Various environmentalists and labor groups have come down hard on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s new rule that lets the state waive environmental regulations on a case-by-case basis. They have even gone ahead and sued her administration for enacting a law that would enable big developers and business hubs to take undue advantage of the loopholes created by ignoring important environmental Protections.

On the behalf of the 27 organizations, a notice was filed on Thursday in the state court, which claims that the waiver rule has been poorly planned and violates many key factors that are important for environmental protection. There has been a big uproar since this rule was proposed last year by the Department of Environmental Protection, and various environmental groups have been fighting to make sure that it is not enacted upon in its current form.

The main aim behind the enactment of this rule by Governor Christie is to get rid of all the hindrance factors that black New Jersey's economy. But according to environmentalists in return, it would also pose a threat the environmental protection.

The field director for Environment New Jersey, who is one of the 27 groups bringing the suit, Doug O'Malley, said that it is in fact unlawful of the administration to issue blanket waivers from environmental protection and no law allows them to do that.

There are thousands of rules that ensure that air and water quality along with land preservation and development are kept intact. With this law coming into action developers and business houses would be able to sidesteps them and get away with it. This law is being seen as anti-people meant for money bagging businesses to get away with the environmental protection measures. A lot more though process needs to be put into before enacting such law.
