Wisniewski Statement on SEC and Port Authority SettlementAssemblyman and Deputy Speaker John S. Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement in response to Tuesday's announcement of a settlement agreement between the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
"With today's settlement between the Port Authority and the Securities and Exchange Commission, Port Authority commuters, once again, bear the brunt of Chris Christie's mismanagement and corrupt administration. These hard-working people have suffered a traffic Armageddon at the George Washington Bridge, have seen four Christie appointees plead or be found guilty of using Port Authority resources for personal gain and now will have $400,000 meant to support the region's transportation infrastructure diverted to pay a fine. All of these actions are the direct result of Governor Christie's heavy-handed interference with a supposedly independent agency.
