Bridgegate Fallout Continues: PANYNJ Will Conduct Review of Trial Testimony.

Courier-Post reports that Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Chairman John Degnan has told The Record (Bergen County, NJ) that he will ask commissioners at the agency’s Thursday, November 17, board meeting to assign a committee to review testimony from the six-week Bridgegate criminal trial. “The committee will be aided by the agency’s general counsel in evaluating whether ‘additional steps’ should be taken against officials who played no part in the lane reduction conspiracy but who nevertheless failed to act appropriately,” Degnan told the newspaper. The report adds, “Degnan also said the agency should consider whether to institute governance reforms on top of those already carried out in the wake of the bridge lane closure scandal. ‘It is clear to me that the testimony at the trial depicts an agency that was overly politicized and engaged in conduct that is troubling and concerning,’ Degnan added.”
