Paula Dow, the current Attorney General of New Jersey, is taking a temporary regulatory role at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The authority is governed by a board of twelve commissioners - 6 each appointed by the governors of New Jersey and New York - and a professional staff. Dow will work to investigate recent claims that authority executives have collected more than $2 million in extra compensation.
Dow will serve as the first deputy general counsel for the authority, after which point she will serve on the Superior Court in Essex County.
