Save Rutgers: Christie to Sign Rut-Row ‘Collaboration’ Bill Today

Today is the day. After months of battling back and forth with students, faculty, and concerned citizens in South Jersey, Governor Christie will be signing a new Rutgers bill that is immensely watered down from the vision he outlined in January of this year.

Save Rutgers: Rut-Row Bill Passes Both Assembly and Senate

This afternoon the Rut-Row Bill passed the New Jersey Senate and Assembly by wide margins. In the Senate the vote was 29 – 10. Most of the Nays were Northern Democrats at war with the Norcross Machine. Senator Diane Allen (R-7) also voted no, for which I congratulate her on her courage to go against […]

Save Rutgers: They Took My Advice and Amended the Rut-Row Bill (UPDATE)

Because the amended bill has not yet been released on the New Jersey Legislature’s website (at least at the time of this writing), I was in the middle of writing a scathing article about how the Rutgers Board of Governors threw the Rutgers Camden campus under the bus at the last minute.

Save Rutgers: North Jersey Dems Will Derail Rut-Row Plan (For Now)

If one thing has always amazed me about politics in New Jersey, it is that you can always count on the respective parties to exert more energy on intra-party guerrilla warfare than they do on actual campaigns against each other. We see this on the GOP side for sure all of the time, exhibit A […]

Save Rutgers: The Devil is in the Details…Analysis Coming Soon

Today during my bar exam review class my phone started going crazy. After weeks of relative silence on the Rut-Row merger, news had finally broke. I kind of wish I had asked Senator Norcross to drop the bill on a Friday when I met with him a few weeks back, because this 87 page bill […]

Save Rutgers: Tick-Tock, Time is Running Out

Today is the day, Save Jerseyans. If Governor Christie wishes to hold strong on his self imposed, seemingly random July 1 deadline for the Rut-Row Merger, his executive order must be issued by midnight tonight.
