NJ Legislature continues hearings on Sandy recovery

The focus of the Legislature's review of New Jersey's response to Superstorm Sandy moves from the shore to hard-hit northern cities tonight as the Senate and Assembly environmental committees convene for a joint meeting in Jersey City.

The two committees held a similar session on August in Atlantic City where they heard from shore area residents who were struggling with the task of repairing their homes or finding new apartments. Many blamed the delay on a frustratingly slow response by insurance companies and government agencies.
