Democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono issued the following statement:
"Governor Christie's conditional veto still leaves children and families waiting to find relief for their pain. He has the power to immediately help the families affected by debilitating seizures by issuing an executive order. The order would give the Commissioner of Health the authority to create a list of other children throughout the state who cannot wait a year for access to lifesaving medication.
"He has signed more than 100 executive orders on a wide range of topics. Governor, have a heart, put aside politics, and allow these children to live better lives."
