Assembly Republican Budget Committee member Gary Chiusano, R-Sussex, Warren and Morris, issued the following statement after the committee’s hearing on a proposal to retain private management services to operate sales and marketing at the New Jersey State Lottery:
“We have an obligation to taxpayers and students who rely on educational programs funded by the lottery to see if there’s a more efficient and effective way to manage certain aspects of the New Jersey State Lottery.
“There is no harm in exploring whether there’s another way to build a better mouse trap – especially if it will increase education funding without raising taxes.
“Although I remain open-minded on this proposal, I applaud the administration for seeking an innovative way to improve the lottery operation.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
