Program Type: 

New York State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) votes "yes" on legislation he cosponsored to make the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey more accountable and transparent.

The legislation was introduced following the Port Authority's complete lack of transparency in approving a toll increase last year. Additionally, there have been numerous reports which have raised questions about the Authority's spending practices and financial management. In addition, a preliminary audit released in February characterized the Port Authority as "a challenged and dysfunctional organization" and highlighted serious issues with the Authority's finances.
