Speaker Oliver on House Approval of Sandy Aid
(TRENTON) – Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic) released the following statement Tuesday on the House of Representatives approving $51 billion in Sandy relief aid:
“It was wrong that it took so long to get to this point, but I’m gratified the House finally did the right thing to help those still struggling in New Jersey to put their home and businesses back together after Sandy. I'd like to thank New Jersey's delegation for all their hard work to get this done.
“I look forward to quick action by the U.S. Senate to get this bill to President Obama’s desk.
“It’s a shame New Jersey was forced to wait while House Republicans played politics, but at least this hurdle has been cleared. It’s what New Jersey residents and business owners deserve to help get back on their feet as quickly as possible.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
