Governor Chris Christie has been very vocal about the attributes of the Garden State. Now he wants to put more money behind marketing for shore communities. Christie has proposed spending a $25 million chunk of federal disaster relief funding to market businesses impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority will administer the funds, as legislation to appropriate the money begins moving through the State Assembly. The governor also submitted the plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Currently, New Jersey spends only $9 million per year for tourism promotion.
