TRENTON – State lawmakers are prepared to issue a fresh round of more than a dozen subpoenas in the ongoing investigation into the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy, according to officials.
Members of the joint legislative committee investigating the so-called Bridgegate controversy announced after a more than two-hour-long closed meeting that a new round of subpoenas will be issued sometime either today or early Tuesday.
Lawmakers declined to provide details.
“We’re certainly not going to announce the service of process today,” said Assemblyman John Wisniewski, co-chairman of the joint investigatory committee.
The announcement was made after lawmakers serving on the committee spent more than two hours behind closed doors discussing the investigation.
Wisniewski said lawmakers had yet to sign the subpoenas and he was doubtful they would be issued before the end of the day.
Last month, the committee subpoenaed 20 people and organizations. The list included Christie’s chief of staff and pick to serve as the state’s Attorney General, Kevin O’Dowd, and the chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, David Samson.
The Passaic County Building and Construction Trades Council today endorsed Andre Sayegh for Mayor citing his effective leadership, efforts to combat crime, and promotion of business and overall economic development in the City of Paterson.Read More >

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
