New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has proposed ethics reforms that would require legislators to disclose more about their assets and income.

The measures also are designed to lessen labor unions' influence over elections.

The proposals Christie unveiled Wednesday also include barring public employees from collecting more than one salary and keeping officials from holding more than one elected post.

Christie told a town hall audience of about 125 the new restrictions are needed to build public confidence in government.

Christie says he'll roll out regulatory, pension and education reforms throughout the month.
