NJ Assemblyman Asks for Internal Toll-Hike Documents

A lawmaker wants the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to release internal documents on a number of decisions, including the raising of bridge and tunnel tolls last year.

New Jersey Assemblyman John Wisniewski’s letter was sent this week and released Friday. It asks for e-mails between Gov. Chris Christie and Port Authority officials in the weeks and months before the authority voted to raise tolls by 50 percent.

The letter also asks for e-mail correspondence between Christie and Port officials leading up to Christie’s decision in 2010 to kill an $8 billion project to build a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River.

Port Authority executive director Patrick Foye says he is reviewing the request.
