Issue

Directs Governor to withdraw from compact establishing Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor; dissolves compact and commission; transfers commission's NJ operations to State Police. In his conditional veto, the Governor states that federal law does not permit one state to unilaterally withdraw from a bi-state compact approved by Congress and that it is premature for New Jersey to contemplate withdrawing from the Waterfront Commission until New York considers similar legislation. The Governor recommends that the bill be amended to direct the Waterfront Commission to promulgate regulations substantially similar to the jurisdictional definitions proposed by the bill. Through this regulatory reform, the Waterfront Commission would expeditiously address one of the major goals of the bill, affording companies doing business in the port region increased regulatory clarity and predictability.
