TRENTON, N.J. — It's not a "shore" thing yet.

Gov. Chris Christie is considering whether to stand in the way of a $420,000 tax credit for MTV's "Jersey Shore."

The state Economic Development Authority approved the film credit last week. It covers production costs for the hit reality series' inaugural 2009 season.

Christie suspended the film tax credit program in 2010 to close a budget deficit. But the 2009 season still qualified.

The governor's spokesman suggested last week that Christie couldn't stop the tax credit. But Christie now says a veto is possible and that he's reviewing it.

The show centers on the cast living and partying along the beach and boardwalk in Seaside Heights.
