11

August 11, 2014 | Number of The Day

State legislators will have to consider whether they want to revisit the 11 bills Gov. Chris Christie vetoed late Friday, some of which are dear to the Democrats’ hearts.

The bills that were vetoed included legislation that would prohibit the treatment or use of “fracking” waste in a New Jersey facility; repeal of the prohibition of sports betting in New Jersey casinos; call for an increase of $21 in energy assistance for qualified families; and create new standards for privatization contracts.

Christie outlined his objections to the bills in individual veto messages, attached to his release.

Three of the bills were conditionally vetoed, meaning that Christie advised the state Legislature to adopt different language and, if so, the bills would be approved.
