Race to the Bottom – With No Brakes or Steering Wheel

You Unlock This Door With the Key of Imagination – Beyond It Is Another Dimension – You’ve Just Crossed Over Into The Legislative Zone!


The Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee heard testimony today regarding State mandates imposed upon local entities.

It was a 4 hour marathon (you can listen to testimony here, although having endured it all and been given the distinct high privilege and honor of being chosen as the last person to testify, I wouldn’t recommend doing so.)

Let me summarize by saying I heard more absurd and flat out jaw dropping stupid statements in one day, than virtually my entire 25 year Trenton career.

I leave you with my own indecision about what was worse: the NJ Health Officer’s Association opposition to new lower child blood lead rules; or Assemblyman Rudder’s quote:

We need a moratorium on great ideas.

I’ll sign off for the nigth and write this thing up tomorrow after I have a chance to reflect and chill.
