Frank Pallone, long a champion of cleaning up New Jersey's beaches and ending ocean dumping, successfully passed his Beach Protection Act through the House this year. The legislation requires tough new beach water quality testing and public notification standards so that beachgoers are confident that the waters they are swimming or surfing in are clean. He also introduced bills to end interstate dumping of medical waste on our beaches and to create a Clean Ocean Zone off the coasts of New Jersey and New York in order to permanently prevent offshore drilling. A long time advocate for cleaning up New Jersey's Superfund sites, Frank continues to push legislation that would force polluters, not taxpayers, to foot the bill for cleaning up these toxic sites.
