The New Jersey Outdoor Alliance (CF) is pleased to announce that three (3) outdoors related bills passed the Senate Environment and Energy Committee today. We would also like to thank NJOA (CF) council members Reef Rescue, JCAA, NJ Council of Diving Clubs, and NJOA for testifying on behalf of the bills. We would also like to thank those organizations unaffiliated with the NJOA (CF) that supported the bills.



A special thanks goes out to the Senate Environment and Energy Committee for their support as well as the Primary Sponsors and Co-Sponsors of the bills (listed below).The status/progress of the bill may be found at the link that follows:
