Latest News


    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie scheduled a press conference on January 9, 2014 at his office in Trenton to discuss the controversy surrounding the closure of all but one lane to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee last September.

    Gov. Christie, who previously said the incident was "not that big a deal," issued a new statement on the matter Wednesday:

    "What I've seen today for the first time is unacceptable. I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge. One thing is clear: this type of behavior is unacceptable, and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better. This behavior is not representative of me or my administration in any way, and people will be held responsible for their actions."
