(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex) and Assembly members Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson), Benjie Wimberly (D-Bergen/Passaic) and Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer/Hunterdon) to ensure the transparent and efficient administration of Hurricane Sandy recovery funding received final legislative approval Tuesday and now heads to the governor's desk.
"Rebuilding what Sandy destroyed will be a major undertaking. A project of this multitude and the bulk of funding involved demands transparency. We owe it to the communities affected to ensure that the funds slated for New Jersey to assist in the rebuilding will be spent wisely," said Oliver.

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
