Today is Election Day, and among all of the political races, it presents New Jersey voters with the opportunity to affect the use of taxes collected from employees' paychecks. If passed, the public question would amend the state Constitution to require all assessments collected from paychecks to be used for the purposes intended. Why is this necessary? Because the government routinely has used those funds as a cookie jar from which they borrow to pay for other things. This is the voters' opportunity to force the politicians to keep their hands out of the cookie jar.
