Christie’s Office Reveals Taxpayers’ Tab For Governor’s Israel Trip [View all]

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s trip to the Middle East this month cost taxpayers $39,871 for security, according to his office.

The office released costs to The Associated Press for state troopers to be in Israel and Jordan with Christie, his family and 13 delegates he invited.

Other portions of the trip were funded by two privately funded groups, and the governor’s office declined to provide some of those costs. The groups are not required to disclose such figures.

Choose NJ, the economic development entity founded by the Christie administration and funded by corporate donations, paid $36,246 for six government staffers to accompany Christie.
