NJBA members are encouraged to participate on substantive committees that regularly convene to review state and regional regulatory programs that impact residential and mixed use projects. Through the analysis and substantive discussions held with members who are practitioners of varying disciplines, NJBA regularly comments on official agency rulemaking by the Department of Environmental Protection, Department of Community Affairs, Department of Agriculture, Board of Public Utilities, Highlands Council and Pinelands Commission. Examples of recent agency rulemaking that NJBA reviewed in depth are:
