Christie at NJ 101.5 for ‘Ask The Governor’ Wednesday — Get your questions heard
Wednesday night, Gov. Chris Christie will return to the New Jersey 101.5 studios for "Ask the Governor," hosted by Eric Scott. Tune in at 7 p.m. or come to NJ1015.com and watch the program live.
The governor's has long argued for lower taxes in New Jersey, and championed a property tax cap he says have helped keep them under control — but a New Jersey 101.5 analysis shows taxes are up $196 on the average residential property tax bill. In his final year in office, he'll also need to grapple with a possible huge impact to New Jersey's budget if Republicans in Congress and President Donald Trump repeal the Affordable Care Act.
And Christie's staked out a major policy goal in 2016 — to help fight New Jersey's growing drug addiction problem. But he's already seeing pushback on an executive order to limit prescriptions for pain pills.
