Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, R-Union, Morris and Somerset, issued the following statement on recent legislative developments with Superstorm Sandy recovery funding:
“The Christie Administration is trying to move forward with a plan to get the money to the people as quickly as possible, while Assembly Budget Chairman Prieto is trying to slow them down by playing politics with Sandy Recovery.
“It was the leadership of Prieto’s party that mismanaged the state’s School Construction Corporation and now would like to take charge of the Sandy fund. Their goal is to play politics in a gubernatorial election year. I would suggest Chairman Prieto’s goal should be working with the Christie administration to make sure people get the help they need without delay.
“There is no doubt the public trusts the expertise of the Christie Administration, which includes former federal prosecutors
such as Comptroller Matt Boxer. People realize that playing politics with Sandy money is not the way to move our state forward.”
