State Senator Brian P. Stack (D-33) called on PSE&G to increase efforts to immediately restore power to residents getting crushed by an absence of power in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
The state senator/mayor also wants the power company to reimburse residents for losses when New Jersey makes it to the other side of the mess.
“While I understand that New Jersey endured the ‘Storm of the Century’, PSE&G should have implemented the ‘Preparation of the Century’ in order to address predicted consequences," said Stack. "While this event was catastrophic, PSE&G should have been prepared to react to such disaster, as we had ample warning about the storm.
“Residents of my district are trapped in high rise buildings," he added. "My constituency needs restoration of power in the immediate future. While I have been in constant contact with executives at PSE&G to express the need for power, the public needs to know that I continue to press for restoration of power. Upon restoration of power to all New Jersey residents, I look forward to the release of a detailed policy by PSE&G, which will explain how residents will be credited for power loss as a result of Hurricane Sandy. After enduring such a loss of power, residents are entitled to relief in their pockets.”

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
