Christie Pushes Line-Item Veto to Trim Democrats’ Budget

Thursday, 30 Jun 2011 03:32 PM

June 30 (Bloomberg) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will use a line-item veto to trim the $30.6 billion spending plan sent to him by the Democratic-led Legislature yesterday, according to three people with knowledge of the decision.

Christie, a first-term Republican, may announce the decision within an hour, said the people, who are government officials and declined to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about it. They declined to say what Christie would cut.

Michael Drewniak, a spokesman for Christie, declined to comment.

The line-item veto would allow Christie to sign the budget into law before the midnight deadline. Lawmakers could try to override his changes later.
