Christie to address NJ amid controversy
Trenton, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will propose extending the public school year and lengthening the school day when he delivers his State of the State address Tuesday.

Two state legislative panels continue to investigate those allegations.
