NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney Wants More Details On Sandy Spending
TRI-STATE NEWS HEADLINES
Gov. Chris Christie‘s administration released its first integrity monitor reports last week, more than 16 months after Christie signed a Sweeney-sponsored law requiring them for contracts of $5 million or more.
Sweeney, D-West Deptford, said the 24-page reports, which include summaries of projects, do not give enough information to show what the state did right — and wrong — in the aftermath of the October 2012 storm. He’s calling on Christie to release documentation of the information that went into the summary.
“If you’re going to spend $5 million, you get more than 24 pages,” Sweeney told WCBS 880’s Jim Smith.
“I want to see all the information that was compiled to create the summary of a report. I’d like to see every page of that.”
Michael Drewniak, a Christie spokesman, said the monitoring is in “full compliance” with the law that requires it. He added that the cost of the report is just a fraction of Sweeney’s $5 million price tag.
