Report: Democrats push for override of Gov. Christie's veto

Democratic lawmakers say they will push forward with their plan to override Gov. Chris Christie's veto of the proposed tax increase on millionaires, according to an NJ.com report.

Two-thirds of the members of both Legislative houses must vote to override a veto. Four Republicans in the Senate and seven in the Assembly would have to switch their votes in order to reach the required number of votes.

Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester) says both houses of the Legislature are scheduling sessions to vote on the proposal, according to the report.

Lawmakers did not specify when the vote would take place.
