2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would impose a short-term moratorium on affordable housing litigation in the State in order to provide the Legislature an opportunity to craft an alternative to litigation. Litigation over the fair share affordable housing obligations of municipalities has been ongoing for decades, yet has produced little affordable housing and little clarity on the issue. Further, all this litigation has been a great expense to municipalities that is ultimately borne by the taxpayers. Moreover, as recognized by the Supreme Court of New Jersey, the myriad issues concerning affordable housing are policy matters best left to the Legislature to address. Accordingly, it is appropriate and fitting, and in the public interest, to temporarily pause the current spate of litigation over municipalities' affordable housing obligations to allow the Legislature to develop new guidelines that account for present-day needs and realities, and that can determine affordable housing obligations in an efficient manner. The moratorium would be effective from the date that the bill is enacted through December 31, 2017.
