Gov. Chris Christie just conditionally vetoed legislation requiring sprinkler systems in all new home construction.

Christie announced the decision on Thursday. He says that mandating sprinkler installation would increase the cost of new homes by thousands of dollars. 

Instead, he called on the state government to analyze whether sprinklers would be appropriate in townhouses, where the cost may be lower.

In a statement accompanying his veto, Christie said he is concerned with the bill’s inflexibility and adds that different buildings have different needs.
