(TRENTON, N.J.) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s trip to the beach during a state government shutdown has inspired new legislation.

Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski said Friday he has introduced a bill that would let the public rent the house on Island Beach State Park that is now reserved for the governor. A second bill would prevent the beach house to be used by the governor during any state shutdown.

The Republican Christie ordered the shutdown after lawmakers couldn’t agree on a budget last Friday. The shutdown included blocking access to the beach at the park.
