Governors' signing deadlines vary from state to state. But the 45-day deadline for passage by default that has been cited in this case is correct in New Jersey.

According to the site "Governor Signing Deadlines" -- in New Jersey when the State legislature is in session, the governor must sign or veto legislation within 45 days of transmittal [i.e., delivery to the governor for signature], or it becomes law without signature. If the bill’s chamber of origin is in recess, the 45-day deadline may be extended to the date that the chamber reconvenes. After a session adjourns, the governor must act within 10 days after transmittal, or legislation is pocket vetoed.

As I cited from the NJBIA, 200k people would be effected if they EB fix isnt signed into law. The NJBIA is as for Business as it gets and they approve of it since it's at no cost to the state or it's businesses.

Well, there is always the GOP principle of not spending taxpayer money - whether it be state or federal. Christie is wrestling with himself on this one, I'll bet.

Governor Kasich of Ohio who is as GOp as they come, who stripped collective bargaining rights in Ohio, signed the bill and that's a legit red state. I think this boils down to that he's got till the end of the month and there is no real rush to sign it.

Plus the money is already budgeted. It'll be spent somewhere else. Or just not at all. It's just a drop in the bucket

Agreed. Christie is not just wiling away the time -- he's probably waiting for the March unemployment numbers to come out (next week) to see if he can hang a decision on some trend he can cite, either down or steady.

IMO, Christie is just taking his time. It was sent to him a week ago. Unless NJ has some historical rate drop of 1 percentage point, Christie would have no leg to stand on when it comes to not signing the legislation and his party in the state Legislative houses all agreed.
