A bill to keep New Jersey in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative passed the state assembly yesterday by a vote of 44 to 34. Two Democrats joined all 32 Republicans in voting against the measure, which passed the senate on Monday. Also passed was a non-binding resolution asserting that it is the legislature’s intent to be part of the regional climate program. Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) is expected the veto the legislation, and the battle with the Koch brothers to keep New Jersey in the successful clean energy program will continue.
