Aberdeen Adjusts Density of Affordable Housing Plans

The Independent says Aberdeen Town Council recently amended its affordable housing plans based on the passage of S-1 legislation in early June. According to the NJ State League of Municipalities, the State Assembly has yet to move the legislation forward, so I'm not sure that there was any basis for local tinkering with COAH requirements, if that is indeed what has been done. CJSLM clearly wants to see COAH disemboweled, allowing local municipalities more leeway to make affordable housing determinations, but the law isn't changed by passage of a Senate version of a bill alone. Am I missing something? The adjustments Aberdeen has made to COAH housing density sound reasonable but may be premature.
