This is What’s Trending Today.
Chris Christie is the governor of the state of New Jersey. He has held the position since 2010.
He is a well-known politician and was one of several candidates who ran for the Republican Party nomination for the presidency in 2016. He dropped out of the race in early 2016, however.
Right now, New Jersey is having trouble passing its budget for the next year. When state lawmakers could not agree on the budget by midnight on Friday, Christie closed the government.
Lawmakers must vote on a budget and send it to Christie for his approval.
Many people who work for the state cannot go to work until a budget is passed because the government cannot pay them.
Police stations, public transportation services, and hospitals remain open. But many state services are closed, including state-operated beaches.
Many New Jersey residents planned to spend the weekend before the American Independence Day enjoying the water and sand. They were upset they could not go to state beaches with their family and friends.
On Friday and Saturday, newspapers across the state published photos of people who had been locked out of state beaches and parks. Some people who were already camping in state parks on Friday were told to leave.
One newspaper photographer decided to take photos from a different angle. He got in an airplane and flew over the closed beaches. He flew close to the governor’s summer house. The house is owned by the state and paid for by taxes collected from residents. It sits along a state-owned beach that, because of the shutdown, was closed to the public.
