Christie, lawmakers fail to enact new budget

A view of the New Jersey State House the area's capitol building

Christie's executive order, declaring a state of emergency, closes non-essential services around the state. "It is clear that New Jersey needs new leadership in the Governor's Office". Similar signs were spotted at other closed locales, including Island Beach State Park.

Prieto has expressed disappointment this week that some of his Democratic colleagues are willing to go along with Christie's plan.

State Senate President Stephen Sweeney, a Democrat, was prepared to accede to Christie's demands, but Prieto was not, calling Christie's tactics "total extortion".

However, most of the anger on the Shore Saturday was directed not at the little-known speaker, but at the rumors that New Jersey's first family and their friends were inside the park at the governor's beach house - enjoying the surf and sun all for themselves - while the public was locked out.

Christie says while the shutdown is happening, the state will do what it has to to function, either through federal funding or by running up a tab.

Maine's Republican-controlled senate had already endorsed the budget with a 34-1 vote, but LePage vowed to veto any budget that increased the state's lodging tax without reducing the income tax, the Portland Press Herald reported. He was expected to return to the statehouse on Sunday, where he called lawmakers back in an effort to resolve the budget stalemate.

Earlier in the day, Christie told reporters he understands that people may have a negative perception that his family gets to enjoy Island Beach State Park while the public can not, but he pointed out that the governor also has a state-owned residence there. "Run for governor and you can have a residence". Prisons, state police and Atlantic City's casinos would remain open. He and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto are at odds over a plan to alter governance for Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, the state's largest insurer.

"If they sent me a budget tonight without Horizon, then, I'll act in one particular way". The Assembly and Senate are technically still in session, and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) said he planned to keep the board room open for a vote indefinitely as he tries to pressure fellow Democrats to approve the budget.

"I'll probably be here, unfortunately", Christie said Friday while in Trenton.

"We will not be very happy, to put it nicely", said Deck, 50, of Jackson, who added that the outing was a weekend ritual for her family.

The governor's office says spending is virtually flat under the package. "I wish I could say the same about some of the other participants", he said. "Others now must now do their part and fulfill their responsibilities".

IL on Saturday entered an unprecedented third year with no full state budget, as lawmakers continued meeting in Springfield.

In Maine, the state government shut down on Saturday after a budget impasse between Gov. Paul LePage, a Republican, and lawmakers from both major parties stretched beyond the midnight deadline.
