Christie vetoed the bill, A-998, along with seven other bills a few weeks ago, as he signed the $32.9 billion state budget, saying they would "deplete the state's fiscal resources, restructure government in a significant manner, and significantly alter the policies and spending priorities" of the budget. He said the bills as a group would "potentially add hundreds of millions of dollars to state and local budgets, frustrating New Jersey's already over-burdened taxpayers and undermining the state budget."
