New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a law on Monday making it illegal to fly an unmanned drone aircraft after too many drinks, a spokesman said on the Republican's last day in office. Once in office, Murphy says he will focus on NJ Transit reforms.

"It is going to be a celebration of all that's right about our state and of our uniting to build a stronger and fairer New Jersey", he said.

New Jersey Transit's board held a controversial board meeting on Martin Luther King Day but didn't vote on purchasing a three-acre site on Hoboken's waterfront to use as a ferry maintenance terminal.
