No dumping

    The battle between public and private has hit the Senate level in New Jersey. Championed by State Sen. Donald Norcross, the Anti-Snow Dumping Act passed the Senate Dec. 13 and no waits Assembly approval.

     

    Norcross wants to take action agaist the “wasteful and selfish practice” of private plow companies and individuals dumpiong snow on public property, the Gloucester County Times reports.

    If passed, the law would take effect immediately, as Norcross hopes to make the plowing task easier for public agencies, but also increase safety during storms.
