Tom Moran, columnist for the Star-Ledger, discusses the new Good Samaritan law that allows people to call 911 to report an overdose without fear of criminal prosecution.
Gov. Christie ain't an environmentalist working towards a sustainable economic future. A few items of note:
-- Shut down the ARC Tunnel project;-- Promotes building development in NJ Highlands Water Protection preserve lands, a source water protection area that keeps NJ water clean and reduces costs;-- Raids Clean Energy Fund to the tune of $1 billion;-- Dropped out of the successful Northeast-based Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI);-- Propped up and subsidized the preposterous, wasteful and inefficient Xanadu/American Dream Mall without looking at alternatives.
Has anyone OD'ed since the veto and the signing?
Thank you, Brian, for pointing out that there will be an actual race for Governor. I live in Hoboken, NJ, and most of the people I know can't wait to vote Christie out of office, Hurricane Sandy performance notwithstanding. We disagree with most of what he stands for and what he has done. It is certainly not a given that he will win the elextion
Why would the person who reports someone else's overdose be arrested? On what charge?
"Green fund" tapped -- not that simple... Green acres $$ often poached for football fields & AstroTurf -- not green acres.
And they have been working on expanding the nj turnpike for years down in south jerseyWhy and where did that money come from
It’s nice to save lives but a new train tunnel would have saved n jersians time and money and improved quality of life.
