Christie set to reveal 2016 NJ budget plan

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey residents will get a glimpse of how Gov. Chris Christie wants to spend their tax dollars when he lays out his 2016 budget next week.

Christie will deliver his sixth budget address Tuesday.

It comes as the Republican governor jets across the country considering whether to seek the Republican presidential nomination and as New Jersey faces a troubled transportation trust fund and public pension system.

There has been no clear agreement between Christie and Democrats about how to move forward on either issue. On the contrary, the hostility is spilling into the open.

Frustrated Democrats say the governor has not briefed them on his plans.

The budget crunch comes as Christie's unofficial campaign is struggling, with donors allying themselves with potential opponents.
