30 Sep: Legislative Oversight Committee Issues Subpoenas Into ‘Race To The Top’ Investigation

TRENTON – The Senate Legislative Oversight Committee today voted to subpoena two key individuals and order them to produce documents in advance of its Thursday hearing into the state’s failed Race to the Top federal education grant application.

The committee was granted the power of subpoena today by the Senate, which voted 21-14 on a resolution (SR-399) offered by Majority Leader Barbara Buono. The committee met following the Senate session and formally issued subpoenas to former state Education Commissioner Bret Schundler and Larry Berger, CEO of Wireless Generation, the vendor chosen by the state to compile its application.
