Letters to the Obama administration went out Tuesday asking for unspecified funding for completion of the Army Corps of Engineers projects.

Separate letters were addressed to President Barack Obama and House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers of Kentucky.

The letter to Obama notes that the coastal areas protected by beach replenishment and flood control projects “fared significantly better” than those still waiting for funding.

The delegation says the coastline sustained billions in damage that will take years to rebuild. The letter was signed by Republicans and Democrats representing New Jersey.

Gov. Chris Christie is meeting with the delegation in Trenton on Tuesday.
