Senator Bob Gordon (D-38) is moving for an override of Governor Chris Christie’s and Governor Andrew Cuomo’s veto of the two states’ bipartisan-backed Port authority reform bills.

“I have had a conversation and an email exchange with the senate president and he is supportive,” Gordon told PolitickerNJ.

The Bergen County senator said he and Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) are finalizing a date for an override vote and considering the possibility of having the vote coincide next month with the governor’s annual State of the State Address.

Given the two-state nature of the proposed reforms, there is a New York sticking point regarding an override.

But Gordon said he is in communication with New York Assemblyman James Brennan and hopeful of a concerted effort by the two states.
