The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) recently held virtual meetings, informing the public of the regulations it seeks to implement as part of the Protecting Against Climate Threats initiative (“NJ PACT”). This initiative was created after Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 100 in January 2020, tasking NJDEP to undertake comprehensive regulatory reform to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and address climate impacts within the state.

To achieve these goals, NJDEP is currently drafting rules on: 1) flood control measures; 2) electric generating units; 3) commercial and industrial boilers; 4) liquid heavy fuels; 5) medium- and heavy-duty vehicles; and 6) cargo equipment. NJDEP seeks to formally propose these rules within the April 2021 New Jersey Register. Each of these proposed rules will have a separate public hearing and comment period.
