DOVER, Del.Governor John Carney on Thursday released the following statement on HB 190, which would responsibly modify the Coastal Zone Act:

“We can and should responsibly redevelop Delaware’s industrial sites, clean them up and put them back to work for Delawareans. This legislation would allow additional flexibility for the 14 existing heavy industry sites within the Coastal Zone, and only those sites. It would open these sites up for additional redevelopment and job creation – while maintaining a commitment to environmental protection. We should do what we can to add good-paying jobs for all Delawareans, while continuing to protect our natural resources. The responsible changes in this bill meet that test. Thank you to Representative Osienski and Senator Townsend and all members of the General Assembly for taking on this important issue.”
