    4 hrs ago | NorthJersey.com

    WHILE A court approval of the $190 million settlement from a chemical company that was held partly responsible for cancer-causing dioxin dumped into the Passaic River during production of Agent Orange is good for that region, it remains disappointing that less than half of that money will actually go toward cleaning the river. Governor Christie's administration is wrong to put $140 million into the state's general fund.

    In his budget proposals for education, transportation and the overall state budget, the governor has identified his spending priorities for the next two years, proposals that provide a starting point for discussions as the Legislature begins its session in mid-January.

    5 hrs ago | Grayson News Gazette

    Gov. Steve Beshear's administration supported tax incentives for Noah's Ark theme park slated to open in 2016 in Williamstown when the governor was running for reelection. In fact, Beshear so coveted the political points he could score from supporting such a project in the Bible Belt that his administration unequivocally endorsed incentives for it without so much as looking at a feasibility study provided by the park itself - an omission I roundly criticized in this column.

    When Gov. Sam Brownback recently unveiled his plans for immediate cuts to state spending to align with revenues -- including a $40 million reduction in this year's state contribution to KPERS, the state employee pension fund -- he stressed he wasn't cutting funds to public schools. In fact, where the state used to directly deposit money into KPERS, it has started first transferring the money into school district accounts, and then into the pension fund, in about the time it takes to say "can't touch this."
