Public School Water Inspection

This petition had 7,218 supporters

Hello, we are seventh grade students from Florence M. Gaudineer Middle School in Springfield New Jersey. We have created a policy to help the issue of unsafe drinking water in New Jersey. Please support our policy by signing our petition to help protect everyone in the state of New Jersey from dangerous chemicals in their water. Our policy is (YPSWI) The Yearly Public School Water Inspection. This policy insures that all public schools will have clean water, and a water test would be conducted annually. Some disadvantages are that it would cost a lot of money, and this policy is only regulated for public schools and tax-supported charter schools in the state in New Jersey. The advantages are that it would protect students from harmful chemicals at schools, no matter what the town’s financial stance is. The level of government responsible for carrying out this law is State government.  State government is responsible because it is supporting all of the tax-funded schools in New Jersey. We would ask Senator Kean to represent New Jersey and propose this policy in the state Senate. If that law gets passed through the General Assembly and gets to Governor Christie and he signs it into law, it would then be up to Kimberly Harrington; Commissioner of Education; and Bob Martin; Commissioner of Natural resources; to enforce this policy in the state. As said in the New Jersey Constitution, “All political power is inherent in the people.  Government is instituted for the protection, security, and benefit of the people, and they have the right at all times to alter or reform the same, whenever the public good may require it.” Everyone should be entitled to the benefit of clean drinking water and it is up to our government to protect this natural resource. Clean drinking water is something that the public needs. Thank you for signing our petition to help the children drink clean water at school.
