SWEENEY TO PUSH FOR OVERRIDE OF CHRISTIE’S VETO ON “SANDY” BILL

sweeney_colorSenate President Steve Sweeney will be pushing to override a veto by Gov. Chris Christie on the “Sandy Bill of Rights.” The “Sandy Bill of Rights” passed both houses of the Legislature by a combined vote of 106-0. The bill, which was vetoed by the governor last week, would do several things, including requiring a plain language explanation of what is needed to be eligible and to apply for Sandy recovery programs; the right to know where your relief application stands and what additional information is needed; the right to know why your application was rejected or why you were placed on a waiting list and the right to appeal a denial of funding.
