The April 20 hearing at the College of Staten Island will focus on the agency’s spending and accountability in the wake of a recent toll increase and critical audits.

The hearing will be co-chaired by New Jersey Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski and New York Republican Sen. Charles Fuschillo. The men lead the transportation committees in their chambers.

The bistate agency is controlled by Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Democrat Andrew Cuomo of New York.

The Port Authority operates airports, seaports, a train system, and several bridges and tunnels that link the two states. It also owns the site of the new World Trade Center.
