NJLM President Kovach Testifies at Senate Hearing on Forest Stewardship Issues

This week, the Senate Environment and Energy Committee hosted a hearing to take testimony from experts and interested parties on the topics of forest stewardship and prescribed burning, and the roles humans should play in managing the State’s forests.

While no legislative action was taken at the hearing, the committee focused its discussion on five bills which the League opposes. NJLM President Janice Kovach, Mayor, Clinton Town, provided testimony to the Committee on behalf of the League, expressing the importance for forests to local communities and the impact the bills would have.

 The League is continuing to monitor this important issue and will continue to ensure that municipal concerns are addressed.
