The petition contends both haven’t complied with two of Gov. Phil Murphy’s Executive Orders, to reduce greenhouse gases by 50% by 2030 and that state agencies consider environmental justice for overburdened and minority communities in all their decision making. The DOT and the NJTA have five months to either grant the petition and initiate a rule-making proceeding or deny the petition giving written reasons for the denial.
