Sweeney: Christie’s Sandy Aid ‘Colossal Failure’

New Jersey’s Senate president says the Christie administration’s handling of Superstorm Sandy aid has been “a colossal failure.”

Steve Sweeney held an event Wednesday in Perth Amboy to push for his proposed Sandy Bill Of Rights.

The bill is designed to better inform and interact with victims of the Oct. 2012 storm.

His comments came hours after the federal government said it won’t drop rules that many Sandy victims say are among the biggest impediments to rebuilding more quickly.

New Jersey officials asked the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to waive requirements that people applying for a housing recovery initiative stop work on their homes when they apply. Work done afterward isn’t eligible for reimbursement.

In a letter obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, HUD rejected the request.
