NJ Congressmen Expect Federal Aid After Sandy

The Christie administration is still compiling damage figures from Hurricane Sandy, but New Jersey’s congressional delegation is confident the federal government will be there to help.

Gov. Chris Christie met with the state’s senators and congressmen Tuesday in Trenton.

Afterward, Christie said little but two congressmen confirmed a positive discussion on beach replenishment, housing needs and lost revenue.

Congressional veterans Frank Pallone, a Democrat, and Chris Smith, a Republican, say they expect Congress to approve a supplemental spending bill to help New Jersey and the region pay storm-related damages.

Also Tuesday, the congressional delegation sent a letter to President Obama asking for federal funds for beach replenishment and flood control projects.

The letter was signed by the House Republicans and Democrats.
