NJ Senate Calls for Rejection of $225M Exxon Mobil Settlement

Monday, 16 Mar 2015 04:16 PM

New Jersey's state Senate has passed a resolution that calls for a judge to reject Gov. Chris Christie's $225 million settlement with Exxon Mobil.

Lawmakers approved the measure Monday, condemning the settlement between the state Department of Environmental Protection and the Irving, Texas-based energy company.

Democrats who control the Legislature say the deal is far less than the $8.9 billion the state had sought, and call it "grossly inappropriate, improper, and inadequate."

Christie has said that in addition to the proposed settlement, Exxon Mobil still carries responsibility for cleaning up polluted sites in Bayonne and Linden.

The acting attorney general announced the deal earlier this month. The agreement still must be approved by a judge, and then would undergo a 30-day public comment period.
