Gov. Chris Christie will meet the media for the second time in two days at the StateHouse on Tuesday to talk about lead remediation and containment efforts. Watch the press conference here live starting at 2 p.m.
In New Jersey's biggest city, fears are growing over lead in the school district's water after a lab found elevated levels in nearly half its schools. The Newark district quickly shut off sinks and fountains in 30 buildings and has offered to test as many as 17,000 kids for contamination.
The state's largest school district began voluntary blood tests to check students for the presence of lead Thursday, a week after officials announced that elevated levels had been found in the drinking water.
