Gov. Christie makes case for property tax cap plan

Gov. Chris Christie continued his series of town hall meetings today in front of a crowd in Rutherford.

Christie laid out his plan to cap property tax increases to 2.5 percent while controlling public employee salaries and benefits.

Christie has planned four such meetings in an effort to boost support for the measure.

The constitutional change requires 21 votes in the Senate and 41 votes in the Assembly before it can be voted on by the public.
