A Test For All You Would Be Governors
Now’s your chance to put yourself in the shoes of a Governor with a budget problem. This little game on Netscape, courtesy of the AP, gives you a turn at crafting a budget that balances the needs of the people and the constitutional demands for a balanced budget. You'll have to get your budget through a legislature that has its own agendas and constituencies. If you succeed, you'll easily win re-election and the chance to do it all over again.
Maybe the voters could use this game as a screening tool to weed out candidates in New Jersey’s race for Governor.
Hint: If you take the advice we’ve offered our Governor, you’ll be a shoo- in for re-election.
