Petition Asks Governor & Legislators to Pass LSP Protection Act

A petition drive is underway to protect Liberty State Park “from another privatization attack.”  This morning, FBW Better Waterfront, tweeted out the plea, urging people to sign the petition which asks Governor Phil Murphy and the New Jersey legislature to pass the LSP Protection Act.  The bill’s primary sponsors are Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, Assemblywoman Angela McKnight and Assemblyman Nicholas Chiaravoaloti, all from the Hudson delegation.

The tweet read, Help protect NJ’s premier urban state park Liberty State Park from another privatization attack. Sign the petition asking

& NJ State Legislators to pass the LSP Protection Act. #jerseycity #nj #libertystatepark #publicparks

So far, more than 19,000 signatures have been received.  The latest attempt at privatization focused on an expansion plan by the owner of the Liberty National Golf Course.  The bill cleared the State Senate in last year’s session, but died without being posted by Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin.   It was reintroduced on the first day of the new Legislature in January, 2020.
