Frelinghuysen continues to lead the effort to protect New Jersey's environment; preserve our vital open space, water, and air; and make our entire region a cleaner and healthier place to live.

It was a proud moment when President George W. Bush signed into law Rep. Frelinghuysen's Highlands Conservation Act on November 30, 2004.

Frelinghuysen's environmental accomplishments include:

* Secured more than $30 million to preserve and protect open space and critical drinking supplies in the Highlands region.
* Introducing legislation to establish H.R. 87, the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area in New Jersey.
* Securing a commitment from the National Park Service to rehabilitate the Morristown National Historical Park museum building, located within America's oldest national historic park.
* Securing support from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to purchase more acreage surrounding the Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge to protect its pristine wildlife and establish a visitor's center.
* Championing statewide efforts to clean-up toxic waste at sites on the National List of Superfund sites and demanding real results for the expenditure of dollars dedicated to cleanups.
* Secured funding for the Passaic River Preservation project, which acquires wetlands properties for flood damage prevention.
* Preserving the Great Piece Meadows.
* Worked to protect the original intent of the Endangered Species Act and opposes any attempt to weaken the law.
