Proposed Sandy Aid Would Cover NJ Costs, Christie Says

Gov. Chris Christie says New Jersey’s share of $60.4 million in proposed federal aid would be enough to cover the state’s rebuilding costs after Superstorm Sandy.

Christie says he’s satisfied with the amount of Sandy aid President Barack Obama has asked Congress to approve. He also says he’s grateful the president’s proposal gives both New Jersey and New York flexibility in how they use the money.

If approved by Congress, much of the funding would come as community block grants to be allocated by the two administrations.

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez led a tour of fellow Democratic senators on a tour of the storm-ravaged shore Monday as they pledged to support an aid bill. Some Republicans have also endorsed the plan.

Christie says he hopes the bill will get through Congress by Dec. 21.
