With 130-Mile Coast, New Jersey Marks a First in Climate Change Fight

January 30, 2020

Jeanne Herb, director of the environmental analysis group at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, said the school issued a report in March that evaluated New Jersey’s climate-change policies in relation to 14 other states. Several other states, including Rhode Island, are moving toward using land-use laws to confront coastal resiliency, she said.

“It would certainly seem that New Jersey would really be taking a big leap here,” Ms. Herb said.
