Gov. Christie: No More Union Pay to Play

Newly-elected New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed an executive order ending the current system of pay to play politics in the Garden State. The order states that unions are now added to the list of groups which are barred from receiving state contracts of more than $17,500 if they had donated more than $300 to a campaign for Governor or county political committee in the previous 18 months.   The order is expected to curb the union influence and patronage that was prevalant during the Corzine administration.
