Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last week called for budget and management audits of the Delaware River Port Authority, as the bi-state agency has come under scrutiny recently for certain management practices.
Each governor sent letters to the DRPA’s board chairman and vice chairman, urging the authority to submit to full budget and performance audits to be conducted by Pennsylvania’s auditor general, or an outside auditor, and also New Jersey’s comptroller. Pennsylvania’s auditor general is an ex-officio member of the DRPA board.
