Bill is waiting for the governor's signature.

It will create more government utilities and tax people who own drive ways and parking lots a "rain tax" to pay for clean up when oil and dirt are washed down the sewers.

DEM States will tax anything.

The bill, approved by the New Jersey Assembly and the Senate, would allow municipalities to create utilities that can collect fees from homeowners and business owners that have large paved surfaces, like driveways and parking lots. During storms, rainwater mixes with pollutants on those surfaces before running into sewers and drains. The funding from the fees could be used for upgrades to reduce the impact on the environment.

AGAIN, there is absolutely no intelligent reason to ever vote for a liberal.
Just more proof, completely idiotic.

I already have a rain tax in Downers Grove because their Public Works sucks and there is flooding all over town. I pay the highest amount because my property doesn't have enough land to "absorb" the water. The house, driveway and garage take up a fair percentage of the property.

New York should have a lot of extra money now that they are not shipping their poop to an Alabama landfill at night.

But hey, tax, tax, and more tax. It's the 'new new'

I can't believe that there isn't some form of opposition to this.

My fucking energy/gas bill went up big time this month. NIPSCO. Yeah I know a little off topic.

Because it was so fucking cold for a few days.

They have stats on it too, it says I use more power than my neighbors. Bullshit.

No, they'll be coming around with tape measures and if you exceed a certain square footage, expect a bill.

I can't believe that anyone with a large driveway/lot isn't telling them to go fuck themselves.
