Christie Says State to Sue to Force Atlantic City School Payment

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he has directed the state to file a lawsuit to force Atlantic City to fund its schools.

Christie said the money collected is being used for other purposes, a violation of state law. The governor told reporters in Trenton that he met with Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto today about the impasse over legislation to help the city and no progress was made.
