Christie attempts to step on Guadagno’s launch. Will the press corps go along?

NBC NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Chris Christie’s State of the State to Focus on Drug Epidemic

By Kelly O’Donnell (@KellyO)

Posted with permission by NBCNews

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will forego the traditional formula of laying out his achievements and policy goals when he gives his final State of the State address Tuesday.

Instead, he plans to use the entire speech to put forth a plan to fight the nation’s drug epidemic, sources close to the governor told NBC News.

By Governor Chris Christie

“On Thursday, the Legislature advanced a commonsense piece of legislation that was first proposed in 2004 and will reform the archaic practice of requiring taxpayers and private businesses to pay for costly legal notices in print newspapers. The legislation provides the option of posting notices online and citizens will be allowed to take advantage of modern technologies that are already in use by the vast majority of the people in our State.

“It also saves money.

“The current unfunded mandate that is being addressed by this legislation costs New Jersey taxpayers and private citizens more than $80 million per year. That is $80 million annually from property taxpayers, including those facing the nightmare of foreclosure.
