TRENTON - Gov. Corzine is out of town for the holidays. That means that Senate President Richard J. Codey again will be governor.

Starting yesterday afternoon, Corzine took a week off to spend with family and friends.

The governor's office declined to say where Corzine would be or with whom he would be spending time. He's expected back in the state on New Year's Day. Codey, who was governor for 14 months after Jim McGreevey resigned in 2004, has no public events planned.
