(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.
