JACKSON - During his 12th town hall of the year, held Tuesday in Ocean County, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) discussed school spending. He also had a field day with lawmakers in front of the standing-room-only crowd.
The governor has come up with a nickname for the state's legislative body, "The Do Nothings." Christie says he's fed up with a lack of movement on his reform package designed to reduce property taxes. He told the crowd that they should call and email their representatives to help get the job done.
News 12 New Jersey also spoke to Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-East Orange), who says the governor may not have to worry about pension and benefit reform for much longer. She says she hopes to have something done on that topic in the next few weeks.
