UNION BEACH, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Gov. Chris Christie and members of his administration held a “Mobile Cabinet” meeting at a Union Beach firehouse to discuss recovery efforts, 100 days after superstorm Sandy slammed ashore.
Gov. Christie was blunt as he talked to an audience in the hard-hit bay shore community about the government’s handling of the National Flood Insurance Program. The governor said the program has funding, but has not yet released it to the state.
“It’s a disgrace,” said Christie. “So it’s now time for our federal representatives to get on the ball and get all over the National Flood Insurance Program to start getting these claims paid.”
