One of the bill’s sponsors in the Senate, Raymond Lesniak, D-Union, often had to defend what many deemed an “imperfect” bill.
Sen. Bill Baroni, R-Mercer, took the floor and asked several questions regarding COAH – a “disaster” of a program – and how the bill would affect the state of New Jersey.
One of Baroni’s questions involved the amount of affordable housing that the bill would create and what a town would do if it literally could no longer “fit” its obligation, i.e. “built out.”
Lesniak had answered this question to an extent prior to Baroni’s series of questions. In fact, I believe Baroni had asked the same question, in so many other words.
You can certainly hear both senators’ frustration during this video, Lesniak defending his own words and Baroni voicing municipalities’ toil when it comes to “proving” compliance under a new bill.
