NJ PACT: Protecting Against Climate Threats


Alongside the release of New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan, the Murphy Administration has embarked on a targeted regulatory reform effort that will modernize environmental laws, Protecting Against Climate Threats (PACT). NJ PACT will usher in systemic change, modernizing air quality and environmental land use regulations, that will enable governments, businesses and residents to effectively respond to current climate threats and reduce future climate damages.

NJPACT Rule Proposals

After hosting multiple stakeholder meetings, the Department is moving into the rule proposal phase of NJ PACT. As proposals are published in the New Jersey Register, information about each proposal, as well as the corresponding public hearing and comment period, will be posted here.
