STAFFORD TOWNSHIP – Gov. Chris Christie said the latest Superstorm Sandy aid relief package that was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives shed roughly $400 million in pork spending.
The governor told residents the Senate version of the relief package that was voted on late last year had hundreds of millions in spending that would not have gone to Sandy relief. The most recent bill is exclusively Sandy related, he said.
“The Senate added about $400 million,” he said. “That was all taken out in the House of Representatives bill.”
The governor’s response to the question at his town hall elicited applause from the crowd.
