The newly formed New Jersey Assembly Select Committee On Investigations says it is issuing 20 subpoenas as part of the growing probe of the George Washington bridge scandal.

“We are going to follow the facts, wherever they may lead us,” said the committee chairman,Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski. He says subpoenas are going out to 17 individuals and three organizations, and he declined to make the names of the targets public until they are served.
