Friday, June 17, 2011

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie took a preliminary victory lap on Thursday evening, celebrating the passage in committee earlier in the day of a public employee benefit reform plan he said would generate $122 billion in savings over the next 30 years for the state's beleaguered pension system. The Governor spoke during a call-in show hosted by WNET and WNYC.
