An act to amend chapter 154 of the laws of 1921, relating to the port
authority of New York and New Jersey, in relation to the commissioners
of such authority

The purpose of this bill would be to assign both of the two
non-designated seats to the surrounding communities.

Section 1 amends article 4 of section 1 of chapter 154 of the laws of
1921 as it relates to assigning the two non-designated seats on the
Port Authority board to a voter from either the county of Dutchess,
Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster or Westchester, and a voter
form either the county of Nassau or Suffolk.

The Port Authority facilities have dramatic impacts on the region;
shaping its growth, economy, environment and quality of life. The
surrounding communities should be afforded the two (2) remaining seats
on the Board of Commissioners in order to ensure that the views,
perspectives and concerns of the inhabitants of the region are
factored into the decisions made by the Port Authority.

2008 - S.8763 - Referred to Rules


This act shall take effect upon the enactment into law by the state of
New Jersey of legislation having an identical effect with this act,
but if the state of New Jersey shall have already enacted such
legislation, this act shall take effect immediately.
