Gov. Chris Christie vetoed three bills on Friday saying the state didn’t have the funds to support the bills. Senate Bills 2134 and 2139 and Assembly Bill 1678 have all been vetoed by Christie. Bill A-1678 would have created a New Jersey Homebuyer Tax Credit program, which would have worked similarly to the federal program, but with less money available. The other bills would have helped fund family planning and health insurance for adults who were not well off financially. Christie said the bills were sent after the budget was approved and the dollars are simply not available in the current budget.
