Christie Book Deal Bill Dies Amid Opposition in N.J. Legislature

  • Measure would have let governor profit from publishing deal
  • Lawmakers also postpone vote on contentious legal notice bill

New Jersey lawmakers killed a measure that would have let Governor Chris Christie earn money from a book deal during his last year in office.

The bill, introduced on Dec. 12 and fast-tracked through Assembly and Senate committees last week, was scheduled for votes by the full houses Monday. The measure was held and won’t be reconsidered because it lacked support, according to Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Secaucus Democrat.
