New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie listens to a question Thursday, June 30, 2011, in Trenton, N.J., after he used a line-item veto to take about $900 million worth of spending out of the $30.6 billion budget submitted to him by the Democratic-controlled Legislature. The line-item veto of the spending plan Christie announced Thursday averts a potential shutdown of nonessential government services. The new fiscal year starts Friday. (AP Photo/Mel Evans) less
