Port Authority Reform Bill to Be Vetoed, N.J.’s Weinberg SaysTerrence Dopp
A bill passed unanimously by Trenton legislators that would bring more transparency to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey will be vetoed by Governor Chris Christie, a leading Senate Democrat said.
Christie’s office told staff for Senate Democrats this afternoon that the veto was forthcoming, said Loretta Weinberg of Teaneck, who has co-chaired a legislative committee investigating the governor’s administration over intentional lane closings last year at the George Washington Bridge.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has until midnight tonight to sign the measure, which also passed unamimously in the Albany statehouse. Both chief executives would need to enact the bills for them to become law.
