While the U.S. Senate has approved a plan to delay a hike in flood insurance premiums, the measure remains stalled in the House of Representatives. This has Jersey Shore-based Superstorm Sandy victims and officials on edge.
Gov. Chris Christie announced Wednesday that the state's Sandy Working Families Living Expenses Voucher Program has dished out more than $11 million to storm survivors since the program's inception three months ago.
On Tuesday, community advocates told the state Senate Legislative Oversight Committee that the majority of New Jersey victims who applied for federal Sandy relief aid were rejected when they should have been approved. They blasted the Christie administration for lacking transparency in the process.
Recovery from Sandy continues at the shore and all across New Jersey, nearly 16 months after the storm. Meanwhile, frustration continues to mount in Ocean County as many communities wait with bated breath for federal relief funds.
The rough winter weather has slowed the Route 35 reconstruction project. Shore area officials are hoping it will be done in time for the summer, but many think that's unlikely considering the snow, ice and rain.
