Vainieri Huttle, Wisniewski, Lagana & Eustace React to Christie Blocking Port Authority Reforms Once AgainAssembly Democrats Valerie Vainieri Huttle, John Wisniewski, Joseph Lagana and Tim Eustace on Monday called out Gov. Christie for his latest attempt to block reforms at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) by conditionally vetoing overhaul legislation they sponsored to create transparency and accountability at the embattled agency.
The bill (S-708/A-2184), known as the "Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Transparency and Accountability Act," would have guaranteed legislative oversight of the agency as it undertakes a number of high profile construction projects critical to the region's future.
