Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean Jr. and Senator Steven Oroho, who both represent portions of Morris County, joined today hundreds of local residents and officials who are urging Democratic leaders not to cancel Monday’s vote to close the dangerous Fenimore Landfill in Roxbury Township, Morris County.

Hundreds of families and school children near the landfill face serious health risks due to the improper, overdue closure by the site’s private ownership group. Kean and Oroho sent a letter today to Senator Richard Codey, urging him to support legislative remedy S2617, sponsored by fellow Morris County Senators Anthony Bucco and Joe Pennacchio.

This bill would transfer the responsibility of closing the landfill to the state Department of Environmental Protection and prohibit any more hazardous dumping there.

Senators Kean and Oroho also asked Senator Codey to encourage his Democratic colleagues on the Environment and Energy Committee to help protect Morris County families and school children by telling Senator Sweeney that politics should not prevent public safety.
