TRENTON, N.J. (PIX11) – Governor Christie had no comment Tuesday night about the issues facing the crumbling bridges and public transportation problems.

In Tuesday’s speech, Christie laid out his proposed $33.8 billion spending plan. The new plan is up $18 million from the current year. When it came to funding the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund, Christie fell silent.

Alarming new data released Monday by the Federal Highway Administration showed that 35 percent of New Jersey’s bridges were in need of repair. It’s the sixth highest in the nation.

Christie discussed hospitals, education and pension contribution during his address.
