NEWARK - (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are adding their voices to those seeking to reform the beleaguered Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The two governors sent a letter Tuesday notifying the bistate agency that they are forming a panel to take a top-to-bottom look at possible changes to the authority. The panel will comprise two sitting or nominated Port Authority commissioners from each state plus one representative from each governor's office.

The agency has been buffeted recently over the lane-closing scandal at the George Washington Bridge, allegations of conflicts of interest and the resignations of several top officials. The Port Authority also has come under criticism for considering backing a private developer's plan to rebuild part of the World Trade Center site.
