Brodsky Chases Coscia

Assembly Member Richard Brodsky is nipping at the Port Authority’s heels: today he and counterparts from New Jersey will propose legislation to make the Port Authority adopt the same measures that New York agencies now must follow according to the 2005 Public Authority and Accountability Act.

Coincidentally–perhaps–the Port Authority introduced a brand new feature to its monthly board meetings last Thursday: a public comment period in which regular folks could make known their feelings about bridges, airports, the PATH, cargo and all the other things that the Port Authority gives us. No one took up the offer, but Chairman Anthony Coscia said it was part of an effort to make the bi-state agency more, um, accountable.
