NJ Court to Rule on Christie's Use of Power

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's power is at the center of the decision.

New Jersey's Supreme Court is set to rule Wednesday on whether Gov. Chris Christie was within his rights when he tried to close an unpopular state agency.

Affordable housing advocates sued when Christie tried in 2011 to transfer functions of the Council on Affordable Housing to a state agency where the commissioner reports to him.

The advocates say he did not have the power to do that.

Christie's administration says it was a way at cutting red tape.

The council is responsible for establishing and enforcing rules about how much housing each town must provide for low- and moderate-income residents.
