Christie’s final State of the State — Watch live, live-tweet here at 2 p.m.
Gov. Chris Christie addresses New Jersey for his final State of the State address at 2 p.m. Tuesday. You can watch live here and join in New Jersey 101.5's live-tweeting, with hashtag #stateofnj, below.
Observers are expecting Christie to put an emphasis on drug rehabilitation — on efforts to stem New Jersey's troubling and growing heroin epidemic. He told New Jersey 101.5's Eric Scott in December to expect announcements on "unilateral" action regarding addiction, a longstanding priority for the governor.
Christie faces multiple challenges heading into his last year — as a lame-duck governor with an 18 percent approval rating, he's got little political capital to spend. And it won't be long before legislators are more occupied with campaigning than legislating.
