Corzine’s COAH mandates don’t “reflect reality”

Senator Sean Kean questions New Jersey’s Anti-Growth, pro-poverty regulations that have virtually destroyed the prospect of new business in the state:

“The housing quotas set by COAH were based on inaccurate data, including projections of job growth from commercial development that could be charitably described as educated guesses at best,” Kean said.

“Now we learn from media reports that the federal government has had serious questions about the state Department of Labor’s monthly estimates of New Jersey’s employment and has required state officials to reduce their estimates to conform to national standards.

“This is just one more bit of evidence that the Council on Affordable Housing set mandates using data that doesn’t reflect reality. I urge Governor Corzine to order the Council to cancel its new rules, go back to Square One and start collecting reliable data.”
