Christie administration must produce new affordable housing rules

    A New Jersey appeals court has ruled Gov. Chris Christie’s administration has until March 8 to write new rules on affordable housing.

     

    Christie disagrees with several provisions in an amended bill that calls for the elimination of the state’s Council on Affordable Housing. The Department of Community Affairs will also require progress reports every two weeks, beginning Jan. 28.

    If necessary, the court will appoint an oversight agency after the first progress report, NJ.com reports.
