Keeping the Port Authority Accountable: Transparency Act Advances

Keeping the Port Authority Accountable: Transparency Act Advances
BY TRISH GRABER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Bob Gordon and Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg to impose comprehensive transparency and accountability standards at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was approved unanimously yesterday by a Senate Committee.

The original law creating the Port Authority was enacted in 1921 and there has been little change since that time. The legislators’ bill, to provide for a systemic overhaul of the agency, represents the first major bi-state reform effort for the port authority since the George Washington Bridge lane closings a year ago. An identical bill passed both houses of the New York Legislature unanimously in June. Since the Port Authority is a bi-state authority, identical legislation must be passed and enacted in both states before it can take effect. With today’s action, the bill (S2181/A3147) next heads to the full New Jersey Senate.
