Bramnick-Rible-Rumana to Congress After Failure to Act on Sandy Bill: Come See Sandy’s Damage

[LETTER] After the U.S. House of Representatives did not take action on appropriating aid to states impacted by Hurricane Sandy on Tuesday night, including New Jersey, Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, Conference Leader Dave Rible and Republican Whip Scott Rumana sent a letter to congressional leaders in Washington D.C. today inviting them to visit New Jersey and the communities that were impacted by the storm.

In their letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Bramnick, Rible and Rumana wrote:

“We are disappointed that the House of Representatives failed to take action on appropriating funds for recovery efforts last night. It is equally disappointing that some elected officials in Washington have sought to significantly reduce the amount of funding requested by the President that would go toward the recovery effort in our state, New York and Connecticut.

“We are respectfully requesting that you come to New Jersey and personally see the destruction caused by this superstorm. As residents and representatives of our state, we have witnessed the horrific impact of Sandy, and we can decisively say there is a big difference between seeing pictures or videos of the storm’s destruction and visiting the homes and businesses that are in desperate need of help from our federal government.”
