The Governor addresses the Press on the importance of the new bill

Congratulations to our friends at The Rescue Mission of Trenton who were honored earlier today when Governor Chris Christie chose their facility to sign a bill that will change the way New Jersey’s criminal justice system deals with drug users by expanding a program that would make treatment mandatory for nonviolent drug offenders instead of time in jail. 

Rescue Mission CEO Mary Gay Abbott-Young agreed Christie’s plan has a lot of merit for helping people turn their lives around.
