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.
