A New Jersey state committee formed in the wake of the New Jersey bridge scandal has issued 20 subpoenas to members of Governor Chris Christie’s staff.

The legislative committee sent subpoenas to 17 individuals and three institutions. None was immediately named.

Assemblyman John Wisinewski, who is leading the investigation, told the Associated Press that no names would be revealed until the recipients were officially served. That could happen Friday.

A New Jersey Senate committee is also investigating whether Christie’s top advisers orchestrated or covered up lane closures near the bridge for political purposes.
