Bucco bill strengthening fire safety commission clears committee

MORRIS COUNTY — An Assembly committee advanced legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco (R-Morris) adding four new public members to the state fire safety commission.

The measure (A2987) cleared the Assembly Homeland Security committee by a 6-0 vote. An identical bill passed both houses unanimously last session, but was pocket vetoed by Governor Chris Christie.

“The introduction of four new members will bring a fresh perspective to discussions about fire safety,” said Bucco (R-Morris). “The new voices will be welcome additions to the organizations already well-represented on the commission. The group can benefit from original ideas and priorities.”

The four new appointments would be members of the general public who are knowledgeable and experienced in matters related to fire safety.

The governor will appoint two members, and two will be joint appointments of the Senate president and speaker of the Assembly.
