For more than three years, environmental groups complained that Gov. Chris Christie's administration had killed off an independent state board that makes recommendations on levels of pollutants allowed in drinking water. They cited it as an example of the Republican governor's withholding state board appointments to control policy debate.
He said the state has been waiting for additional guidance from the federal government before setting limits on the chemical.
Ragonese said Thursday that the institute' agenda is still being planned, and he did not know if the group would be asked to look at PFOA.
