    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is returning to familiar themes as he launches a new series of town hall meetings.

    A list of policy priorities obtained by The Associated Press shows Christie is planning to renew his call for tax cuts when he appears in Howell Wednesday.

    The Republican governor and Democratic lawmakers have battled over dueling tax-cut plans. Lawmakers say they want to wait to see if there's enough money to pay for the cuts. Christie says there is.

    The governor is also pushing to eliminate payouts to public workers for unused sick time. And Christie wants to implement a package of government ethics rules that he's been pushing for years.

    While some of Christie's top priorities have found their way into law, others have not gained much traction in the Democrat-controlled Legislature.
