State of New Jersey
Executive Order #92

Governor James E. McGreevey

WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 59 (2003) established the Billboard Policy and Procedure Review Task Force (hereinafter Task Force); and

WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 59 (2003) imposed a 120-day moratorium on the approval of any permit application, contract, sale or lease for billboards on State-owned property or property of any State department, agency or independent authority; and

WHEREAS, Executive Order No. 66 (2003) continued that moratorium until the end of the current Legislative Session of the New Jersey Legislature, to allow time to convert the recommendations of the Task Force into proposed legislation and to achieve their enactment; and

WHEREAS, the complexity involved in drafting the proposed legislation and the nature and schedule of the Legislature's Lame Duck Session did not allow for sufficient time to achieve the passage of the necessary legislation; and

WHEREAS, there remains a compelling need to continue the suspension of the siting and construction of new billboards on State property until the new Legislative framework is put in place;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JAMES E. McGREEVEY, Governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and by the Statutes of this State, do hereby ORDER and DIRECT:

  1. The moratorium on the approval of any permit application or contract for the design, construction or erection of any new billboards on State-owned property or property owned by any State department, agency or independent authority established by Executive Order No. 59 (2003) and continued by Executive Order No. 66 (2003) is hereby continued until June 30, 2004, so that the 211th Legislature has an opportunity to enact appropriate legislation.

  2. This Order shall take effect immediately.

GIVEN, under my hand and seal this 14th day of January
in the Year of Our Lord, Two Thousand and Four, and
of the Independence of the United States, the Two Hundred and Twenty-Eighth.

/s/ James E. McGreevey
