GORDON BILL TO PROVIDE PARENTAL NOTIFICATION OF CONTAMINATION RECEIVES
By CNoel Politicker NJ May 15, 2009TRENTON - A bill sponsored by Senator Bob Gordon, a member of the Senate Environment Committee, which would require prompt parental notification when hazardous materials are found on school property was given a hearing by the Senate Environment Committee, with a vote to come at a later date.
"When an environmental hazard is discovered on school grounds, the school district has a responsibility to let parents know as soon as possible," said Senator Gordon, D-Bergen. "This bill would codify that responsibility, and set an appropriate timetable for full disclosure of contamination to all appropriate parties. Parents and school staff need to be made aware of any potential health risks on school grounds, so they can take whatever actions are necessary to protect themselves and their kids."
