August 1, 2012 – Governor Christie is putting corporate special interests and his big campaign contributors ahead of the public interest. He has ordered all state agencies to issue rules to waive the safeguards they are supposed to enforce. These safeguards protect our health and safety at work; our air, water, and open spaces; and our rights as consumers.
Christie’s political appointees will be able to let any chemical, oil, banking, insurance, drug, or development company violate our safeguards if they think it creates “an undue hardship.”
We need to stop this policy in its tracks by getting the State Legislature to block the first agency’s waiver rule.
Sign our petition to stop Governor Christie from waiving our safeguards!
