Christie taking state chopper to Island Beach

Prieto says he will not post for a vote in the Assembly any bill that would restructure Horizon, calling the idea unfair and unsafe as Congress considers repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

Andrew Spears, a leader with Cub Scout Pack 124 in Tinton Falls, said his group was told to leave Cheesequake State Park on Saturday morning.

"Government is closed over a transparency and accountability fight", he told the lawmakers.

Though some signs have popped up around the state blaming the mess on Prieto, it's likely that the wildly unpopular Christie will ultimately take the fall.

During the shutdown, essential services including health and safety operations as well as New Jersey Transit will continue to operate. "Let's do it today and then go home".

"This Facility is CLOSED Because of This Man", the signs read, listing a telephone number for Prieto's office.

The problem will be a headache for visitors hoping to enjoy Jersey's 40 state parks, recreational areas and historic sites, but will of course be much more severe for residents.

He also said he may use his constitutional authority to call them in on Sunday if necessary.

Measures will include enhanced screening of electronic devices and more thorough passenger vetting. The new measures couldn't come soon enough for experts like Robert Mann, analyst at R.W.

"The Legislature's inability to approve an FY18 State Budget by the June 30th deadline has forced the closure of state government".

The national Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, which sent a representative to the Senate budget committee hearing Monday to oppose the bill, has seen its members in similar situations across the country since the early 2000s. "I wish I could say the same about some of the other participants", he said.

On Thursday I did not vote on the proposed budget to allow more time for the Legislature and the Governor to strike a compromise that would ensure his signature on the budget as it is, which includes critically important funds for property tax relief, healthcare, infrastructure and school aid.

Horizon has said it now operates within a range of 550 to 700 percent, most recently stating it anticipates finishing the year at 585 percent. "Others must now do their part and fulfill their responsibilities".

He also claims Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto D-Hudson, "unneccessarily stalled the budget process, inconveniencing everyone living in our state".

The shutdown in Maine came after 60 House Republicans voted to block a $7.1 billion two-year spending plan, Maine Public Media reported, leaving lawmakers 13 votes shy of the two-thirds vote needed to pass the emergency budget. New Jersey's credit rating is now the second lowest in the United States, above only IL.

On Friday at midnight, the budget impasse pushed the government into the second shutdown in state history, furloughing nonessential government employees and closing state parks and other services.
