Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jon Runyan(R-NJ) issued the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 152, the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013, by the United States Senate.
“I am pleased that the Senate has acted today to pass additional funding for Hurricane Sandy relief. With Senate passage, and the President’s eventual signature, these dollars will go to help families and businesses in New Jersey rebuild. The Northeast has waited too long for these critical dollars, however, I am glad that the final product of this legislation is focused specifically on regions directly impacted by Hurricane Sandy. As we can now move forward, I will continue to work with local, state, and federal stakeholders to ensure these dollars are used in the most efficient and effective way possible.”

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
