Permit Extension Act Renewal Signed

As Governor Jon Corzine prepared to leave office Monday, January 28, 2010, he signed the Permit Extension Act Renewal (S3137/A4347) into law, which amends the “Permit Extension Act of 2008”, further extending the expiration date of certain permits for an additional 2 1/2 years.

Under this law, a significant number of municipal, county, regional and state approvals shall be extended to December 31, 2012.  The initial “Permit Extension Act of 2008” was set to expire on July 1, 2010.

All other requirements of the Act remain, and no approval subject to this amendment can be further extended greater than six months after the end of the extension period – June 30, 2013.
