Christie lashes out at 'do-nothing' legislature

    Gov. Chris Christie’s so-called “tool kit” remains mostly empty nearly a year after he proposed 33 bills to help towns and cities slow the rate of New Jersey’s highest-in-the-nation property tax increases. With less than two months before lawmakers leave Trenton to seek re-election, Christie is intent on taking his frustration to the people. Using a daily countdown clock and his weekly town hall events, Christie on Tuesday lashed out at what he calls a “do-nothing Legislature.” Democrats say they have passed bills to slow the increase in property taxes. They say many of Christie’s suggestions would do little to save homeowners money.
