Quote of the morning: NJ dunes

Jill Lipoti, Director of the Division of Water Monitoring and Standards for the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, just participated in a panel about how policy-makers need to adapt to changing conditions.

A member of the audience asked how the state was dealing with beachfront residents who still objected to sand dunes, which greatly lessened the impacts of Hurricane Sandy.

"I think Governor Christie answered that when he said he wants dunes," she responded, adding pointedly, "We're working very closely with deputy attorney general to make sure we have the authority to make his wishes come true."
