Audit Finds New Jersey Turnpike Authority Gave Excessive Perks to Employees

Auditors say the New Jersey Turnpike Authority paid its employees $30 million in unjustified bonuses and squandered millions on health insurance while tolls increased.

The Comptroller's Office audit released Tuesday says taxpayers also picked up the tab for free E-ZPass transponders, scholarships for workers' kids, an employee bowling league and more.
