New Jersey’s State Of Emergency Rescinded

TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Acting Governor and Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney rescinded New Jersey’s state of emergency Monday night and said state offices will reopen at their regular time Tuesday morning.

Sweeney thanked State Police, the Office of Emergency Management, Department of Transportation and local public works and public safety departments statewide for their response to the blizzard.

“I thank the residents of New Jersey whose lives have been turned upside down for the past two days for their patience,” Sweeney said.

Sweeney is the acting governor of the Garden State while both Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno are away on vacation.

“While this storm hit us much worse than anticipated, the cleanup is well underway,” Sweeney said.

Sweeney said it would still be “several days” before the state had things “totally cleaned up.”
