Advice On Difficult Decisions and PennEast Pipeline Problems – Wednesday’s Roundup

“If we make the difficult decisions now and do the difficult things, there is no limit to Atlantic City’s future,” Governor Chris Christie told radio host Harry Hurley yesterday, when discussing his appointment of Jeff Chiesa as Atlantic City’s new man in charge amid the state takeover. It remains to be seen what difficult things the state will actually do. One nice tidbit from this Press of Atlantic City piece on Chiesa is that he and his staff now have an office in City Hall – and they are squeezed in with their government colleague, the state monitor of the city. Which goes some way to illustrating how big a change this iteration of Atlantic City’s state takeover really is.

The $1 billion gas pipeline project that investors – including South Jersey Gas – say will bring cheaper gas to South Jersey has been slammed by a state official. A state consumer advocate on utilities prices said the companies behind the pipeline had failed to show why it was necessary and how it would bring down prices for consumers, according to NJ Spotlight.

The rest of what we’re reading today includes a second report of assault at Rowan, poaching rule changes and an op-ed on impeaching Christie. The headlines are below.
