CHRISTIE SIGNS NEW STATE BUDGET, VETOES DEMOCRATIC BILLS

No down to the wire budget for New Jersey this year.  On Friday, Governor Chris Christie signed the state’s new $33 billion budget into law.  The new budget is about four percent larger than last year’s budget.  Christie negotiated with democrats on key parts of the budget plan, including accepting $227 million in federal funds to expand the state’s Medicaid program.  But Christie also vetoed a series of democratic bills including one that would add $7.5 million to family planning centers.
