Senator Joe Kyrillos said that he is pleased that the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee will visit the flood ravaged communities of Union Beach and Highlands tomorrow for lawmakers to learn of residents’ concerns about about Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts.
“I am particularly concerned about the complaints I have received from residents of these two communities, and others in my district, regarding the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s efforts in the state,” said Kyrillos (R- Monmouth). “I’ve received many complaints of ambiguity in terms of monetary compensation for residents in similar situations, lack of temporary housing, and slow response times that I believe FEMA needs to address. I’m glad that residents in this area are being given the forum to air their frustrations and needs to the Budget Committee but more importantly, will work to make sure that they are heard by federal authorities with FEMA.”
