Fire safety commission expanded as governor signs Bucco bill

Senator Anthony Bucco

BOONTON —Assemblyman Anthony Bucco’s legislation bolstering the state fire safety commission with new members was signed by Governor Phil Murphy.

The bill (S1799/A2987) increases the commission to 27 members from 23. The four new appointments will be public members who are knowledgeable and experienced in fire safety matters.

“New faces on the commission will bring a fresh perspective to discussions about fire safety,” said Bucco (R-Morris). “These appointees will be welcome additions to those from organizations already well-represented at the table.”

The governor will designate two members, and two will be joint appointments of the Senate president and speaker of the Assembly.
