New Jersey's animals just can't catch a break.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie struck another blow to animals on Thursday when he vetoed a bill that would have encouraged public school cafeterias to offer vegetarian options.
The bill, which passed the state's assembly and senate by a significant margin, advised schools to take students' cultural preferences into account when planning menus, and to provide options such as vegetarian and vegan meals.
In his veto letter, Christie noted that the bill would require schools to launch advisory committees if students complained about cafeteria offerings, saying it was an undue burden on already stressed public schools.
