Fighting a fire will rely on sprinkler systems and internal pipes, as well as scores of firefighters working from inside the building.
Democrats fell short Monday in an attempt to restore funding to more than 50 women’s health clinics and a half-million dollars to a center for sexually and physically abused children in New Jersey.
Democrats passed a budget that left the aid intact but cut more than $1 million for oversight. In response, Gov. Chris Christie cut $139 million, leaving $10 million to help municipalities with extraordinary hardships like Trenton, Camden and Asbury Park.
New Jersey’s struggling municipalities are out $139 million in state aid that was promised — and in some cases awarded — before Gov. Chris Christie vetoed the appropriation in this year’s budget.
The League of Municipalities says cuts totaling $240 million will adversely impact their ability to provide much-needed property tax relief in their towns.
In New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie used his power to line-item veto a budget handed to him by Democrats. The governor said he’s keeping his promise to not raise taxes.

Recession-pummeled construction workers expect to see a year and a half of steady work on the casino project, while residents hope they’ll be able to land one of the estimated 5,500 permanent jobs the casino and hotel will create.
Legislative budget officer David Rosen was expected to tell the panel that revenue and spending were roughly on track seven months into the fiscal year.
Finishing Revel has long been seen as the single biggest move the nation’s second-largest gambling market could do to fight back against regional casinos popping up all around them.
The Spectrum Gaming Group report predicts Atlantic City’s casino revenue will fall more than 13 percent this year, while casinos in Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and Maryland will increase their revenue.
