Sarlo: senate will secure subpoena power for RTT probe

TRENTON – Heading toward the Senate session this afternoon, state Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-Wood-Ridge) said he is confident that the senate will be able to secure subpoena power to investigate the Christie administration’s blundered federal Race to the Top application.

He’s far less secure in his belief that the senate will secure the supermajority votes required to override Gov. Chris Christie’s veto of a $7.5 million spending bill for women’s healthcare.

“It will be very disappointing if we don’t get the votes on a bill that would provide healthcare for battered, low income women,” Sarlo told PolitickerNJ.com. “This is a moral issue.”
