Kean Won’t Let Democrats Run & Hide; Will Force Reform Vote on Thursday
Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean said that Senate Democrat Leaders’ continued obstruction of PANYNJ reform is leaving the multibillion-dollar public agency in a state of flux without the ability to properly serve commuters and taxpayers, as the search for a CEO drags on. Senator Kean noted that he has learned the Majority Leader’s smokescreen legislative proposal, S-3066, could prevent the creation of the Gateway Development Corporation.
“Trenton Democrat politicians will not be allowed a free pass to be the lone obstructers of bipartisan Port Authority reform that has already been signed into law by New York’s Democrat governor and would be signed by New Jersey’s governor,” Kean said. “During tomorrow’s Senate session, I will be forcing a vote on the bi-state bill, S-3048, I have sponsored to make the Port Authority efficiently operate at full capacity, now, when the people need it most.

This legislation will prevent the Port Authority from ever again wasting or wantonly increasing the billions of dollars the public agency takes each year from hard-working commuters and taxpayers.”
