Moratorium on Offshore Wind in New Jersey

On December 6, 2004, New Jersey governor Codey proposed a one year moratorium on offshore windmills as reported in Codey to block energy windmills in ocean for a year (12/9/04) and now, as reported Codeyhere, the legislature will consider a bill that would impose a seven year moratorium. The purpose of the Governor's ban was to give the state time to develop a policy on offshore wind, but Senator Kyrillos, the bill's sponsor, believes that even more time is needed. Many environmental groups oppose the moratorium because it attaches a stigma to offshore wind proposals.
