Write Your Legislator about the Fertilizer bill

You can help get the fertilizer bill passed by writing, phoning, or emailing your legislator. Urge a slow-release nitrogen content based bill — as desired by the bill’s sponsors — instead of industry’s proposal to rely on labeling.

Find your state legislators here:


Write, phone, or personally speak to your State Senator and two State Assembly representatives to request that they support the sponsors’ language that requires at least 30% slow release content in fertilizer used or sold in NJ. Senator Bob Smith, Senator Jennifer Beck, and Assemblyman John McKeon are the bill’s sponsors. The bill is numbered S-1411 and A-2290.

Tell your representatives to stand firm for requiring at least 30% slow release nitrogen and to oppose the labeling law that industry is proposing.

This is essential if Barnegat Bay is ever to be restored to health.
