Trenton NJ, State Senator Joe Pennacchio today thanked Senate President Steve Sweeney and Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. for allowing the formation of a special committee to investigate the state’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

Pennacchio released the following statement:

“I echoed the same concerns and desires articulated by the Senate President and Republican Leader Kean in today’s announcement. The focus of our committee must be a factual review of what has happened to date, what should not have happened, and how we can make it better going into the future.

“I would hope the Senate would vote to form this committee, with subpoena powers, as soon as possible. I would also hope the committee, like Governor Murphy, will hold its meetings in Trenton, in the People’s House, for all to see.

“The special committee must be able to work in real time to share its concerns and determine how we can open up our economy and return to normalcy. It must determine how we can better safeguard the lives of our most vulnerable citizens living in long term nursing facilities.

“To that end, I stand prepared to begin work and I challenge the Senate to construct and enable this committee as soon as possible.

“On behalf of the citizens of New Jersey who want answers, I thank the Senators Sweeney and Kean for their leadership.”

  1. LET THE IMPEACHMENT BEGIN!!! truly one of the most dangerous governors i have ever seen. i was never a political Pearson until 2016, but let me tell you i will NEVER VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT AGAIN FOR ANY POLITICAL POSITION!

  2. NJ GDP is about $42.5 Billion a month. We re coming up on the 3 month mark of lockdown for a virus that lasts maybe 11 days, and has about the same impact as a mild flu. And people are hoping for a vaccine from an industry that last season, by CDC numbers, gave the general population a vaccine that had an effectiveness of a mere 10 percent. SMH.
