BRICK – Claps in a crowd of residents and homeowners ensued when Gov. Chris Christie shot down a reporter’s question this morning concerning potential government response to a Hurricane Sandy-ravaged home that collapsed earlier this month.
“My problem is every time an accident happens we have to come up with new laws,” said Christie, who chastised politicians for falling prey to media pressures to write meaningless – or complicating – legislation in the wake of anything that goes wrong.
According to a July 10 Associated Press report, four construction workers received injuries when a Little Egg Harbor home beaten up by Sandy went down "as crews were jacking up the two-story structure."
“Does it necessitate a new law? No one’s shown me the need for a new law,” he added. “Accidents happen.”
Applause poured forth from an audience of jean and T-shirt clad press conference attendees.
