Two anti-flooding measures have been sent to the governor’s office by the New Jersey Legislature.

One bill creates a Rockland-Bergen Bi-State River Commission, which would develop a flood management plan for northern Jersey and New York. The panel will look to protect communities from streams flowing south from Rockland County, N.Y., to Bergen County, N.J.

The Assembly unanimously approved the measure Monday. The Senate had previously given its backing.

The other bill appropriates $1 million to the state Environmental Protection department to initiate a flood-control and prevention project for the South River in Sayreville. The funding source is a 2003 bond act.

The bill passed the Senate 23-15 and the Assembly 42-30-1 on Monday.

Both measures now go to Gov. Chris Christie’s desk for his consideration.
