Congress has approved a total of more than $60 billion in Sandy relief aid for the Garden State and New York. The top Democrat in the New Jersey Senate says when you're talking about that much money, you had better make sure none of it is squandered.
Congress on Monday passed a $50.5 billion super-storm Sandy emergency package of relief and recovery aid. Added to $9.7 billion previously approved for a federal flood insurance program, the total is roughly in line with the $60.4 billion President Barack Obama requested in December. New Jersey Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno can't wait for the money to make its way to the Garden State.
Following a delay of Sandy relief legislation at the beginning of this year that outraged NJ Governor Chris Christie and the entire New Jersey Congressional delegation, the House of Representatives finally voted in favor of a $51 billion package last week.
As the Sandy Relief Bill moves closer to materializing, Congressman Rush Holt (D-12) warns cuts to the Regional Ocean Partnerships in the legislation will prove detrimental to the region as it recovers.
Two and a half months after Superstorm Sandy slammed Jersey, the House of Representatives has finally approved a 51 billion dollar relief package, much to the delight of the New Jersey Congressional delegation.
