TRENTON, N.J. — The head of a legislative homeland security panel in New Jersey is calling for restrictions on the governor's use of state helicopters for transportation and a ban on air transit to personal and political events.

Democratic Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (kee-HAH'-noh) says she'll introduce on Thursday legislation that would restrict the governor's use of helicopters to official functions and emergencies.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie and his staff came under scrutiny after media reports said he used state police helicopters to catch his son's high school baseball games and to meet with donors trying to persuade him to run for president.

Christie and the Republican State Committee later reimbursed taxpayers for the trips.

State police Col. Rick Fuentes says the governor is safer traveling by helicopter than by car.
