Judge Gail Cookson's Denial of MCRP is Huge Win for Middletown Residents

On Thursday, March 8th Administrative Law Judge Gail Cookson denied the Monmouth County Reliability Project (MCRP) proposed by Jersey Central Power & Light. In her 180-page decision, Judge Cookson referred to the high-voltage power lines as “untried, untested, and likely infeasible due to its narrow width, age, and proximity to residential communities.”

The Township considers Judge Cookson’s decision a huge win for the residents of Middletown and for all of those who live along the proposed 10-mile route from Aberdeen to Red Bank.

“The Township Committee and I are elated,” said Mayor Stephanie Murray. “We’re confident that Judge Cookson’s strongly-worded opposition to this project will ensure that the BPU makes the right decision.”
