New Jersey Governor Chris Christie vetoed $420,000 in film tax credits to the ‘Jersey Shore’ television program that was approved for the show last week by the state Economic Development Authority.

The money was supposed to cover production costs for the hit reality series' inaugural 2009 season.

Christie suspended the film tax credit program in 2010 to close a budget deficit, but the 2009 season still qualified.

He said in a statement he's "duty-bound" to ensure taxpayers aren't footing a bill for a project that "does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens."

The show centers on the cast living and partying along the beach and boardwalk in Seaside Heights.
