It was a pretty busy weekend for New Jersey's Governor Corzine. On Friday he accepted the minutes of the Highland Council, which had the legal effect of launching the controversial Highlands Plan. On Saturday he signed several bills into law including a few that appropriated funds for land preservation:

(Watson Coleman/Gordon) – Revises regulation of landscape architects
This law raises the status of landscpes architects as a profession by advancing them from certification to licensure.

A-2867/S-1919 (Greenwald, Malone, Cryan, Biondi, McHose/Sarlo, Van Drew) - The “Permit Extension Act of 2008”
The omnipresent Jeff Tittel called it "one of the worst environmental bills ever passed by the New Jersey legislators and one of the biggest giveaways to developers in the state's history."
