WEEKLY WASTEBASKET :COVID Relief and Common Sense Principles...

WASHINGTON POLITICS the Sequel Kind of Like “Back to the Future Part II” | Weekly Wastebasket Mar 5, 2021 | The original Back to the Future, where Marty McFly's time travels from his real-life in 1985 back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean is a classic. Back to the Future Part II, where Marty's time travels to several different years is like many sequels – still somewhat enjoyable – but doesn’t quite measure up. You can think of the CARES Act from early 2020 as the original movie: pleasing to most observers and a novel approach to the problem. Unfortunately, the American Rescue Plan (ARP – CARES Act part Deux) doesn’t quite measure up. For us, and a lot of people who will be watching,... Read more →

Investing in resiliency for our power grid with renewables

When an unprecedented cold streak gripped the state, residents there found their energy infrastructure woefully inadequate, and millions were left without power and water for days or even weeks. For those of us in public service, this was yet another reminder of the importance of proactive preparations that can protect our communities in times of emergencies. It was for this very reason that the Camden County commissioner board and city of Camden began working on a proposal for a “microgrid” in Camden several years ago. A microgrid... Read more →
