Wisniewksi proposes changes at Port Authority
Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski of Sayreville is introducing legislation to reform the Port Authority.  His proposal - unveiled Thursday - would cut the number of high-level appointments made by the two states' governors from six to three.  Two appointments would be made by the states' legislatures, and the remainder by a newly created citizens' advisory council.  Among other features, the bill would allow Port Authority board members to select their chairman and vice chairman. Currently those are selected by the two governors.  Wisniewski co-chairs the New Jersey legislative committee investigating the Bridgegate scandal, in the wake of which, several Port Authority executives resigned.

Sayreville school officials cleared to talk to coaches about hazing scandal
School officials in Sayreville have received clearance to conduct their own invetsigation into the fotoball hazing scandal there.  That came Wednesday from Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey, who initially had told school officials not to talk to the coaches while the criminal investigation was being carried out.  Carey says the investigation continues, but that his office has consented to "the school board's commencement of administrative interviews and hearings."  Earlier this week, head football coach George Najjar and his assistants were suspended as teachers in the district and their coaching stipends reduced in the wake of the scandal, in which seven members of the varsity football team have been charged with hazing and four incidents of sexual assault for alleged incidents that took place over a ten-day period last month in the football lockerroom.  The season was subsequently cancelled.
