With that in mind, what do you think of the way Gov. Chris Christie has handled the environment in New Jersey?Officials from the New Jersey Environmental Federation went as far as to say they made a mistake when they endorsed Christie over then-Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, in 2009 - the first time the group had ever backed a Republican for governor.
Christie has taken more than $800 million from three funds dedicated to promote clean energy initiatives and used the money to plug state budget gaps.
This week, the administration defused some of the criticism when it revealed that the New Jersey Drinking Water Quality Institute is being reconstituted with the addition of three new appointees. It will start meeting again in April.
The Drinking Water Quality Institute, formed under a 1983 law, has long been watched closely by industry and environmental groups.
