N.J. Lawmakers Form Special Investigative Panel To Look Into Bridge Lane Closures

by Wochit 1:00 mins

New Jersey lawmakers said Monday they will form a special investigative committee, with the power to order testimony from witnesses, to probe the George Washington Bridge lane closures that have exploded into a scandal for Gov. Chris Christie. There had been questions about whether the Assembly’s power to subpoena witnesses and documents would expire this week. But the incoming Assembly speaker, Vincent Prieto, pledged his support and said the committee would also be given a special counsel. Documents unearthed by that committee and released last week made it appear that Christie’s now-fired deputy chief of staff and Christie appointees at the Port Authority, which controls the bridge, ordered the lane closures as an act of political payback.
