COAH, shmoah? So reports colleague Maya Rao, who delved into the issue of affordable housing and found that due in part to a stalemate between Gov. Christie and Democratic legislators, the fate of the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) could end up in the courts. The New Jersey Supreme Court may ultimately decide, in an age-old Garden State tradition, how many homes that towns need to build for poor people in one of the most expensive states to live in the USA.
And that makes the reverberations from Christie's recent shake-up at the Supreme Court that much more interesting.
