CHRISTIE TAKES TO WEB MEDIUM TO DEFEND CONTROVERSIAL ‘NEWSPAPER REVENGE BILL’
christiestatehouserotundaNJ News Commons – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie created a new account on Medium .com and used his inaugural post to defend what some have called a “newspaper revenge bill” that would repeal a law that requires local and county officials to pay to publish legal notices in printed newspapers. Critics say the bill, which will be voted on today, would gut the already struggling print news business in New Jersey. NJ Spotlight breaks down the facts surrounding the actual effects of the bill, and Free Press built a tool that allows New Jersey residents to easily contact their legislators and voice their opinion on the issue. Meanwhile, NJ.com says there is discussion of a possible compromise on the table before the bill goes up for a vote later today.
