Two days at the beach--next week in the NJ Legislature

The environmental committees in both houses of the New Jersey Legislature have scheduled a joint hearing for Monday to consider six bills that address rebuilding at the Jersey Shore following Superstorm Sandy.

And then the fireworks...

On Friday, March 8, the Democratic majority will conduct the first in a series of hearings on how the state responded to Hurricane Sandy. The focus will be on the politically-volatile topic of the Christie Administration's award of a shore cleanup contract to the Florida-based debris hauling firm, AshBritt

Here's next week's lineup:
