In his first State of the State Address yesterday, Governor Christie said New Jersey's made some big improvements since he took office last year.

The governor said that his state has made great strides, balancing the budget and reducing taxes:  "We have begun to do something that no one thought was possible. We've begun to turn our state around.”

But Gov. Christie mostly focused on the challenges facing the state.

He said New Jersey’s pension system is unsustainable and needs to be fixed. Christie also presented a number of proposals to reform the Garden State's education system, which he says is failing too many kids.
