"Dealing with the legislature is like dealing with your children who have a book report due. Many of you parents understand exactly what I mean. The book report's given to them in January. The teacher tells them "You've got to have that book report and it's due June 30th. … For us, the teacher assignment is the State of the State address in January. I laid out an ambitious agenda in January for the things that we needed to get done this year. … All of a sudden there's 30 days left. They just picked out the book. They haven't started reading it yet. And they've got to jam it all in to the last 30 days. … And for some reason they never change. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the New Jersey State Legislature."
