(TRENTON) - Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee Chair L. Grace Spencer (D-Essex) released the following statement on Thursday following a tour of the storm-ravaged Jersey Shore with Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin earlier this week:
"As Chair of the Environment and Solid Waste Committee, I was given the opportunity to tour the storm-ravaged Jersey Shore with Com. Martin and his staff. The purpose of the tour was to view the storm's devastation and environmental impact, and survey the state's debris disposal operation.
"After witnessing first-hand the devastation from Sandy, it's evident that reconstruction and restoration must take place. The shore towns impacted were decimated. Without assistance from the federal and state governments these towns will not be able to rebuild and some will become abandoned."
