The article reports on the criticism generated over former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey's executive order. McGreevey's executive order violated federal regulations on the awarding of contracts. The order limited the amount of money those seeking to do business with the state could donate to state politicians' campaigns. Federal officials are concerned that limiting political contributions by those firms and individuals seeking state business would reduce the number of companies eligible for contracts that contain federal funds.
