The Democratic chairwoman of the Assembly Homeland Security Committee says she’ll convene a hearing into New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s use of a state police helicopter to fly to his son’s baseball game.
 
Assemblywoman Annette Quijano tells The Associated Press she has concerns over the personal use of a chopper bought to help protect ports and airports and transport people during
emergencies.
 
Quijano says the hearing will focus on the procedures for transporting dignitaries and their families. No date has been set.
 
Christie and his wife arrived by chopper and flew off in the fifth inning for the governor’s mansion, where a delegation of Iowans couldn’t persuade Christie to run for president.
 
Christie’s spokesman says the governor won’t reimburse taxpayers.
