Recently, the newly created Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity sent a letter to all fifty states asking them to submit extensive information about registered voters. The letter has created an uproar among state officials, and many have announced their intention to refuse the request. President Donald Trump has tweeted his disapproval of these state refusals.

A $60 million boondoggle created to benefit large investment firms?
Or a program that will create much-needed jobs in rural areas?

“It’s horrible legislation,” said Julia Sass Rubin, a Rutgers University public policy professor who has studied such tax incentive programs for decades. “Ohio here is giving away $60 million in taxpayer dollars and writing a check to these firms. In return, all they need to do is make loans – making money both on the interest rates and tax credits.industry, Julia Rubin, rural tax credit, tax incentives
James Hughes, a Rutgers University professor at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, said New Jersey’s broad diversity is nothing new.
At the start of the 19th Century, more than 25 percent of the state’s population was foreign-born.
Back then, most immigrants were either from Italy, Germany or Ireland. But today New Jersey is dominated by Latinos and Asians.
