Statement on NJ Transit, NFL & Stadium Owners Refusal to Cooperate with Monday Hearing

February 21, 2014

(TRENTON) – Assembly Transportation Committee Chairman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) released the following statement on the refusal of NJ Transit, the NFL and MetLife Stadium owners to cooperate with a planned Monday hearing on NJ Transit’s recent woes:

“Monday’s hearing on NJ Transit’s recent woes will unfortunately be postponed.

“I was advised by James Weinstein that he was told he cannot attend the hearing and provide explanations for recent problems suffered by the agency. The National Football League and the stadium owners also refused to attend to explain their actions surrounding the Super Bowl problems.

“This is very disappointing and an insult to the riders inconvenienced by the many recent problems.

“I plan to again call NJ Transit to testify in March and explain how they will fix these problems as soon as possible, and I expect cooperation.”
