Even while we commemorate on July 4th, the signing of the Declaration of Independence 245 years ago, plans are underway for a great celebration in 2026 – the Nation’s Semiquincentennial. You can find out more here https://revolutionarynj.org/250th-updates/
 
Please have a happy and safe holiday and please take the time to remember those who fought to gain our independence and to protect it, and those standing ready to defend it today.
 
The United States of America remains, as President Ronald Reagan said, ‘The last best hope of man on earth.’

Hunterdon Commissioners Call For Penn East Eminent Domain Fight To Continue In Congress 
Hunterdon County’s Board of Commissioners Director and Deputy Director, following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of the PennEast pipeline’s taking of taxpayer preserved land, will propose a resolution at the July 6th Board meeting calling on New Jersey’s U.S. Senators and Congressman Malinowski to move forward pending legislation that amends existing law allowing private companies to use eminent domain to take state land. 
 
Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Director Susan J. Soloway stated, “The Supreme Court, in their 5-4 decision, supported by the Biden Administration, hung their hat on the 1938 Natural Gas Act. It is time to change the law. We will be proposing a resolution on July 6th asking our federal representatives to act on pending legislation amending the 1938 Act.”
