  1. Will be interesting to see where this goes, if anywhere. You might recall Chip Flowers’ spats with the Cash Management Board, precipitated in part by board members’ efforts to protect a certain large Delaware bank (hint: it was later acquired by M&T). Governor Jack strongly supported the board (one of whose members during the Flowers era was prominently mentioned in the Wilm U story in the Sunday NJ) and earlier efforts to force financial disclosures failed. Now, interestingly enough, one of the co-sponsors is Charles Potter, whose wife was taken down by Flowers in the 2010 primary. Paul Baumbach, one of the GA’s sharpest financial minds, is a cosponsor, and so is transparency advocate Kim Williams. Not making any predictions here, but this deserves watching.
