WOODLAND PARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey’s Senate president says he will attempt to override Gov. Chris Christie’s veto of Port Authority reform legislation “again and again and again and again.”

Senate President Stephen Sweeney told the editorial board of The Record (https://bit.ly/1EVZHsL ) that he will use the same strategy U.S. House Republicans have used to fight President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Matching reform measures for the beleaguered transit agency were passed by both the New Jersey and New York legislatures last year. Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced their vetoes of the measures on the Saturday after Christmas. The governors instead embraced recommendations from a special panel they formed.

Sweeney says the New Jersey Senate will try to override Christie’s veto on either March 5 or 16. New Jersey Republicans have never gone against a Christie veto.
