NJ lawmakers authorize 2 Christie investigations

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Assembly unanimously renewed its investigation of a plot to manufacture traffic jams that has shaken Gov. Chris Christie's administration.

The state Senate authorized a parallel probe Thursday.

John Wisniewski (wiz-NOO'-skee), who's leading the Assembly investigation, says new subpoenas seeking emails and text messages from key Christie aides will be served as soon as Thursday.

Christie, meanwhile, met with homeowners affected by Superstorm Sandy as he tries to put the scandal behind him.

The Republican governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate has not been implicated in the lane closures near the George Washington Bridge. The closures were apparently ordered as political payback and caused massive traffic backups.

Four of Christie's key aides have lost their jobs over the plot.

The administration and the Assembly have each hired outside lawyers.
