Proposal to make it easier to get building permits, inspects in New Jersey gets committee’s support

The New Jersey Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee advanced a bipartisan bill Monday that aims to allow construction companies and contractors to apply for permits and scheduled inspections online.

The bill had the backing of numerous business associations including the New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce, the New Jersey Apartment Association, the Utility and Transportation Contractors Association and the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA).

“Often when the legislature enacts meaningful legislation and the departments implement those legislations through regulations it imposes burdens on the business community,” said Ray Cantor, NJBIA’s vice president for government affairs in testimony to the committee. “Even though those burdens per regulation may be minimal over time, they do add up and the costs and the burdens become significant.

Plan to send LNG trains through Philly to S. Jersey port sparks outrage from residents, environmentalists | Business

Environmentalists have stepped up alarms about a major fuel export terminal in South Jersey that they say will accelerate Pennsylvania fracking, worsen climate change, and attract 100-car trains carrying dangerous liquefied natural gas across Philadelphia.

A plan to build the Gibbstown Logistics Center in Gloucester County, N.J., just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia International Airport, appears to be coming to a head by the end of the year. A hearing examiner and the staff of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) have recommended approving permits to dredge the river and to build a pier for the $450 million private port, which is being built on the site of DuPont’s former Repauno Works in Greenwich Township, N.J.

The DRBC, an interstate agency that regulates river development, voted on Sept. 10 to delay a decision at least until its next business meeting in December. But the commission will be hard-pressed to
