THE CHRISTIE TRACKER: GOVERNOR CHRISTIE'S DEBATE PERFORMANCE

Governor Christie was back on the main stage again last night for the fifth Republican presidential debate. With less than two months to go before the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, it’s getting to be do-or-die time for all candidates not named Trump. So, how did Christie do? David Furst sits down with Matt Katz of NJPR and Andrea Bernstein of WNYC on the latest episode of WNYC's Christie Tracker Podcast to discuss Christie's performance in his own words.
FEDERAL LAWMAKERS VISIT CONTAMINATED SITE TO PUSH FOR SUPERFUND CLEANUP FUNDING

MAKING SURE PRIVATE FIRMS PAY FAIR PRICES WHEN THEY LEASE PUBLIC LANDS
When preserved public lands are diverted for private uses, the state is supposed to be compensated. NJ Spotlight says that doesn't happen nearly as much as it should.

The issue has recently emerged as more of a priority, especially as the expansion of natural-gas pipelines and high-voltage transmission lines continues throughout the state.
BILL WOULD RAISE COMPULSORY SCHOOL AGE
New Jersey lawmakers are considering a bill that would raise the compulsory school attendance age from 16 to 18. WBGO says the goal is to reduce dropout rates in certain areas of the state, which are extraordinary. Opponents say raising the age for mandatory attendance may not solve the problem, and lawmakers should look instead at why kids choose to leave school.
