Filing shows wide range of data sought from Port Authority

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A recent bond filing has captured the breadth of information sought by local and federal authorities from the embattled Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

The notice to potential bond buyers is dated April 7 and describes a litany of projects and activities for which information has been requested, either by subpoena or official request.

The requests come from the U.S. attorney’s office in New Jersey, the Manhattan district attorney’s office, the Securities and Exchange Commission and two state-level investigatory bodies in New Jersey.

The U.S. attorney’s office has been investigating the apparently politically motivated September 2013 George Washington Bridge lane closures.

Recent subpoenas and interviews by the U.S. attorney’s office appear to signal the investigation into the lane closings is winding down.
