Today is Constitution Day, the anniversary of the day in 1787 when the Constitution was approved and submitted to the states for approval. There were two basic schools of argument: that the new country was best served by being united under a strong federal government, and on the other hand, that it would be best served if the individual states had more power, the argument being that common interests in commerce would keep them from acting against one another.

Spotswood Takes Stand Against "Prevailing Wage" Mandate For Public Projects
Spotswood borough officials are pushing to eliminate "prevailing wage" mandates from publicly funded projects and hope other New Jersey municipalities and school boards will follow suit.
The borough unanimously passed a resolution that lists drawbacks of the wage mandate, asserting, for instance, that it inflates costs and creates an unnecessary level of bureaucracy.
"It really needs to be made public so taxpayers know where their money is going," said council President Curtis Stollen. "Once you realize what taxpayers are saddled with, it's grossly unfair."
In the coming months, borough officials plan to circulate the resolution to school boards and municipal bodies throughout Middlesex County for support, Stollen said.
