On Tuesday he will deliver his annual Budget Address at the Statehouse.  The budget is certain to be focused on recovery from Superstorm Sandy, the worst natural disaster to ever hit the state.

The state is expected to see a boom in construction jobs and an influx of billions of dollars in federal storm recovery money.

Assembly Budget Committee Chairman Vincent Prieto says he hasn’t been briefed on the budget proposal and is not sure what to expect.

The Governor  travels to Morris County for a Town Hall meeting in Montville and then to New Jersey 101.5′s studios in Ewing for his monthly Ask The Governor program at 7p.m.

Christie is back on the road Thursday for a fundraiser in Virginia hosted by Ed Rogers who leads the BGR Group,  a  Washington, D.C., lobbying group that represents AshBritt,the debris removal company Christie hired on an emergency basis after superstorm Sandy. The move has drawn criticism for circumventing the usual bidding process.

Christie’s campaign says the site was chosen by Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell according to HispanicBusiness.com.
