Christie Vetoes Bill Requiring Public Notice of Raw Sewage Overflows

"Governor Christie declined to sign a bill that would have required public notification whenever sewer-outfall pipes dump raw sewage into local rivers and bays, legislation that had received overwhelming support by both parties in the state legislature."

"The bill also would have required outfall pipes to be clearly marked with signs for swimmers, fishermen, kayakers and other who use the water.

Christie’s office announced Tuesday that he let the bill expire without signing it – in effect a pocket veto."
