The General Assembly finds and declares as follows:
(1) The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was created by the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey, with the consent of Congress, to provide
an efficient means of carrying out the planning, construction, maintenance and rehabilitation
of certain Delaware river crossings.
(2) The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey rely upon the commission
to competently execute the duties and powers delegated to it as well as carefully
managing the not inconsiderable financial means available to the commission.
(3) Notwithstanding the delegation of power to the commission, it is incumbent upon
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey to ensure that the commission
carries out its duties in a manner which ensures prudent use of toll payer moneys.
(4) Therefore, it is in the best interest of the public to supplement or limit the
powers of the commission, as the case may be, to require the commission to competitively
bid contracts in accordance with the public policies of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
and the State of New Jersey.
