TRENTON - Documents produced as a result of the latest round of subpoenas are in the hands of committee members investigating the Bridge-Gate scandal.

The documents are being kept in a room behind a door marked "authorized personnel only."

Because of the recent weather, this is the first day lawmakers have been able to see the material.

The first Republican to view the information, Assemblywoman Amy Handlin, has expressed concern that the committee's two Democratic co-chairs had no legal committment to make the documents available to Republicans in a timely manner. 

Handlin told News 12 New Jersey the information inside the room is fragmented and doesn't complete the full picture, but was pleased to get her hands on the information so quickly.

"This is day one," Handlin says. "And I hope that as we move forward we will continue to be granted timely access and full access, and certainly down the road I am hopeful that the public will be granted access."

Only a few of the subpoenas were returned by the original Monday deadline.  Most of the 20 people and organizations involved have requested extensions. At least two of the people most central to the investigation, Bridget Anne Kelly and Bill Stepien, have refused to cooperate.

The committee has not said when the public will get a peek at the information.
