New Jersey Democrats seek to override Christie’s jobs bills vetoes

    Democratic legislators in New Jersey plan to override Gov. Chris Christie’s vetoes of 11 bills designed to create jobs. Christie vetoed 14 jobs-creating bills earlier this month, saying they didn’t include where the money to pay for them would come from.
    Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver scheduled overrides for tomorrow, as the Associated Press reports, but will need support from three Senate Republicans and seven Assembly Republicans to be successful.
