In the wake of accidents and deaths attributed to defects in certain tires, particularly those installed on Ford Motor Co.’s popular SUV model, the Explorer, Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. has recalled 6.5 million tires. Public outrage has not subsided despite the recall.
New Jersey’s agenda for the 1990s is clear. The state has urgent needs in the areas of housing, the environment, education, health care, crime and delinquency, social welfare, and transportation, and the ways to finance them. The order of these priorities has shifted over time but the needs have persisted and intensified. New approaches are long overdue.
