(UPDATE 2/2/17): In what may be the first GRC complaint filed against the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey since it became subject to OPRA in June 2015, the GRC ruled on Jan. 31, 2017 that the Authority violated OPRA by seeking “at least 3 weeks” to review a request (that was ignored the first 2 times it was submitted). In addition, the GRC required the Authority to adopt a proper OPRA request form within 5 business days of the ruling.
(Dec. 6. 2015)
The Port Authority’s failure to abide by OPRA has resulted in a Denial of Access Complaint filing with the GRC. It may be one of the first against the bi-state agency, which became subject to OPRA on June 29 of this year. See our legislation page for info on the new law (bill S2183).
Despite legislation, Port Authority of NY/NJ still not honoring OPRA
