UPDATE: And … it’s over. Quick doings. Assembly Budget votes to enable subpoena of the Treasurer. Next, it goes to the entire Assembly.
UPDATE#2: Full Assembly vote on this resolution has not yet been scheduled. Follow Blue Jersey for updates.
This morning, the Assembly Budget Committee will consider a resolution today granting it subpoena power over Gov. Chris Christie’s administration. This is in response to news coverage about the Christie administration’s no-bid contract with Florida-based AshBritt, Inc. as well as state Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff’s four refusals over a period of five months to testify before the committee when called to do so. They are seeking to question Sidamon-Eristoff on several budgetary issues, including Hurricane Sandy spending, and specifically agreements made with AshBritt.
Hearing, scheduled for 10am, has a delayed start.
AshBritt: Here is a handy history.
