Legislation sponsored by Senators Kip Bateman and Dawn Marie Addiego giving veterans’ organization more flexibility to manage their costs has been signed by Governor Chris Christie.

Installation That Will Save Southampton Residents $1.2 Million Almost Lost on Technicality, New Bill Would Protect Future Projects

Legislation to be introduced by Senator Dawn Marie Addiego and Assemblyman Chris Brown provides priority status to solar electric projects that can potentially save taxpayer money.

Southampton School District superintendent Michael L. Harris asked the 8th District legislators for help when a technicality threatened a solar project that is expected to save property taxpayers more than $1 million.

“This is a system that will generate clean, renewable electricity for the next 15 years, and provide substantial cost saving to the district.

Would Allow Proceeds Received from Games of Chance to Support Veterans’ Organization
