Billions of dollars have been spent to help Sandy victims recover from the superstorm that slammed the Garden State 19 months ago, but now some Central Jersey residents are wondering if they've been left behind and forgotten.
Ever since he's been the governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie has refused to even consider the idea of raising the state gas tax to pay for transportation repair projects, but Tuesday night on Townsquare Media's Ask The Governor show, he seemed to suggest his position might be shifting.
Gov. Chris Christie, appearing on "Ask the Governor," said the Select Committee on Investigation has taken almost 11 hours of Bridgegate testimony and has learned nothing that isn't in the report issued by lawyers who conducted an internal probe.
A panel of New Jersey lawmakers used a portion of Monday's agenda to question a member of the state treasurer's office on the lack of progress with a Sandy-related measure signed into law more than a year ago.
After Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill that would have formed a study group of experts to look for ways to make college more affordable, Sen. President Steve Sweeney reintroduced the bill and the full Senate approved the measure Monday.
New Jersey lawmakers learned today that, despite a March 2013 law requiring independent integrity monitors on large Sandy-related projects, they won't get their first status update from the monitors until this summer.
