GOP effort to overhaul Port Authority stalls

New efforts to overhaul the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey appear stalled.

New Jersey Senate Republican leader Tom Kean Jr. says he “fine-tuned” a bill he plans to introduce on Thursday after New York Assemblyman James Brennan raised questions about it.

But Brennan says he is not in talks with Kean and is waiting for a proposal from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo or New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Brennan declined to discuss the specifics of Kean’s bill.

Brennan expects lawmakers in New Jersey to try to override vetoes of a bill that lawmakers in both states unanimously passed.

The Democrat-controlled New Jersey Senate is planning an override vote later this month.
