Does Gov. Christie have an overall budget plan for N.J.?

Does Gov. Christie have an overall budget plan for N.J.?

COMMENTARY

One such friend is an old high school buddy that I haven't seen in over 25 years. While growing up, my buddy's mother was very active in town politics and served as the township mayor at least once to my knowledge.
