Governor's Desk: Bill Could Mean New Municipal Obligations Under MLUL

Last week, the NJ Senate voted to approve A-1371/S-606, a bill which the League opposed. With the Assembly approving the measure early this summer the bill now goes to the Governor for his action. The intent of A-1371/S-606 is to encourage local units to plan for electric vehicle charging (EVC) infrastructure. This would be achieved through changes made to the “optional elements” of the municipal master plan and the Local Redevelopment and Housing Law. Under this bill, municipalities could be required to show on their master plans existing and proposed locations of public electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

While the League appreciates the underlying intent, the bill places new, unnecessary and unfunded requirements on municipalities while running contrary to the clear legislative intent of the “optional” elements of the master plan. Further, it is unclear whether a municipality can properly plan and determine when EVC infrastructure is necessary or appropriate without a more comprehensive plan at the State level.
