    However much it was originally.  Apparently NJ was given more than the $7.6M that they've apparently forfeited, according to this article on 2/05:

    N.J. could forfeit $7.6M in federal funds

    During a press conference Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (D-West Windsor) said the Christie administration "has been nothing but obstinate in not claiming this money in time to get the full benefit" of these funds.

    The $7.6 million is left over from a planning grant New Jersey received several years ago when it was considering creating a state-run exchange where people would buy subsidized health plans under the ACA. New Jersey opted instead to use the federal exchange, at healthcare.gov.
