    Lawmakers to Hold Hearing on Sandy Recovery

    A New Jersey law was passed in March of 2013 to monitor Sandy-related projects valued above $5 million and so far, no reports have been received. (Published Monday, May 12, 2014)

    A New Jersey legislative committee is using a hearing to chide Gov. Chris Christie for not producing quarterly reports on monitoring of Superstorm Sandy rebuilding projects.

    The Assembly's State and Local Government committee's hearing is scheduled for Monday morning.

    Some members of the committee are upset about how the administration has responded to a March 2013 law requiring independent monitors to oversee Sandy projects that cost more than $5 million.

    So far, the Legislature has not received any of the quarterly reports called for in the law.
