New Jersey seems to never miss an opportunity to send a message that it is an overly regulated state unfriendly to business.
The latest is state legislators making home bakers sue the state to be allowed to sell limited amounts of their breads, cakes, cookies and such. Democrats in the state Senate have blocked voting on a bill ending the ban, which likely would pass.
In this and in too many other cases, New Jersey lawmakers are the last in the nation to adopt an obviously better practice.
Wisconsin left the Garden State alone and looking foolish in the spring when a judge ruled its ban on home-baking sales had “no real or substantial connection” to consumer protection.
