MONMOUTH COUNTY LEGISLATORS EXPRESS OUTRAGE AT LACK OF ACTION ON FEDERAL SANDY AID BILL
Senate and Assembly Republican legislators representing Monmouth County municipalities devastated by Superstorm Sandy issued the statement below in response to the House of Representative’ failure to take action on a $60.4B Sandy aid package. They include Senators Joseph Kyrillos, Jennifer Beck, Sam Thompson and Robert Singer; Assemblywomen Mary Pat Angelini, Caroline Casagrande and Amy Handlin, and Assemblymen Declan O’Scanlon, David Rible, Sean Kean, Ron Dancer and Rob Clifton:
“We are appalled at the House of Representatives’ decision to not take action on the Sandy aid package that is so vital to our recovery efforts. Residents and businesses at the Jersey Shore are in dire need of assistance as they try to recover from this historic and unprecedented storm which has adversely affected so many lives.
“Kicking this can down the road is absolutely unacceptable and shows utter contempt and a disturbing lack of compassion for the thousands of our residents and businesses who, in many cases, have lost everything and continue to endure unspeakable hardship.
“The House’s failure to act at all is as unconscionable as was their earlier efforts to significantly reduce the amount of federal emergency aid. Their lack of action is shameful and inexcusable.”
Governor Christie held a news conference this afternoon to express his outrage at the “continued inaction and indifference by the House of Representatives” to act on the desperately needed aid package.

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
