McKeon statement on Christie/Exxon Mobil settlement

New Jersey Assemblyman John McKeon (D-Essex/Morris) released the following statement Thursday on the Chrisite administration’s announced $225 million settlement with Exxon Mobil Corporation. As the Assembly Judiciary Committee chairman, McKeon plans a March 19 committee hearing on the settlement:

“This announcement does little to explain this questionable decision by Gov. Christie and his administration. We still have no rationale for the monetary settlement nor specifics on how the contamination will be cleaned. This matter continues to need a full public discussion, and I look forward to inviting acting Attorney General Hoffman and Commissioner Martin to testify at the upcoming hearing.”
