NJ governor begins week of Jersey Shore visits

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is headed down the shore.

    Christie starts the first of three beach and boardwalk visits today with a trip to Ocean City.

    He’ll be mixing in a little business with his pleasure–the governor will tout his administration’s commitment to protecting the state’s beaches and waterways during his trip to Cape May County, and also plans to stroll on the boardwalk.

     

    Christie last week approved $650 million in no-cost and low-cost loans for water quality and protection projects. Some $450 million are for projects that clean up water used for fishing and swimming. The rest is for projects that protect drinking water supplies.

    More than 170 applications are pending.
