Following yesterday’s FY 2013 budget finale that left virtually no one satisfied, Governor Christie used one of his office’s more dramatic powers to call for a special session of the New Jersey State Legislature.

You can read his letter to Senator Sweeney and Speaker Oliver here, Save Jerseyans.

Recalling the early colonists’ struggles with taxation, Christie ended his letter with a Independence Day theme:

Today, our citizens deserve the same opportunity to decide whether a new direction, embodied in the recommendations I will share, is needed to end the cycle of tax increases that has paralyzed our State’s growth, and stunted our citizens’ progress. When you convene this Monday at 11:00 a.m., I will ask for the opportunity to address your members on the two paths that face all who are fortunate enough to serve as elected representatives.”

Thank you, Mr. Governor, for giving me something to write about next week!

The session will begin with an address from Christie that promises to invoke strong reactions on both sides of the aisle. Governor Christie has repeatedly refused to entertain Democrat proposals; Democrats, in turn, have continued to inject class warfare into what should be a discussion about our weak economy and the proper scope of government. Par for the course when you’re dealing with libs.

New Jersey is one of 34 U.S. States where a special session can be called by either proclamation of the governor or upon the petition of a majority of the legislature’s members of both houses.
