From the John Locke Foundation:

"I just think you're making stuff up and it doesn't give me a lot of confidence that our vote is for a program that is going to work. But I am quite willing to go forward with this tonight."— Charlotte City Councilmember Susan Burgess, as quoted by The Charlotte Observer, on a $1 million pollution-reduction program city council approved last week. City staff was not able to explain how they arrived at $1 million or exactly what the program would accomplish.
