FLEMINGTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie may be
known for cutting government spending, but this week he's been talking about
where he's spending more.
The governor on Tuesday was in Flemington to talk about a $3.5 million
increase in money for NJ CEED, a cancer screening program
for people without insurance.
Christie was in Dover in Monday showcasing a $10 million increase this year
in state money for community health centers.
Both spending increases were included in the state budget that took effect
Christie says he wants to highlight the increases in part because his state
budgets make so few of them. Democrats have often criticized Christie for not
including $7.5 million for women's health clinics in his budgets — and vetoing
when they try to put it in.
