(TRENTON) - The General Assembly on Monday approved a measure sponsored by Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver and Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick urging Congress to act on legislation that would clear $60.4 billion in federal resources to help New Jersey and other states recover from the damage and destruction inflicted by Superstorm Sandy.
"The level of devastation brought by Sandy was massive. Touring the Jersey Shore and seeing the destruction up close made it ever more clear that these towns, these neighborhoods, these families need our help and they need it now," said Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic). "We might differ in our policies, but not in our responsibility to assist people who are suffering. Congress has appropriately rushed aid to areas afflicted by natural disasters in the past. We respectfully ask that they do the same for New Jersey and every other state still struggling to bounce back."
