Christie asks AARP to oppose Assembly tax plan

Gov. Chris Christie is asking New Jersey senior citizens to work against a property tax credit plan that's partially paid for by reinstating a tax on millionaires.

Christie spoke to AARP members in Trenton Thursday.

An Assembly plan calls for a 20 percent property tax credit increased to 25 percent credit for seniors and disabled homeowners, along with the tax on millionaires. Christie has vetoed the tax and promised to veto it again.

Christie says he's worked to control property taxes through caps and other means. The governor says there's room for compromise between the Senate's 10 percent property tax credit plan, which doesn't include the tax, and his proposed 10 percent income tax cut.

AARP hasn't endorsed any of the plans.
