New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is hoping to get federal aid to cover the cost of cleanup from the blizzard. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is to survey the damage in the Garden State today. Mother Nature finally did over the weekend what salt and plow trucks could not, which was melt away a lot of the snow. The damage, however, wass done.
In a letter to President Obama – filed just hours after returning from a Disneyworld vacation with his family – Governor Chris Christie asserts storm conditions in 13 counties exceed FEMA’s minimum aid standards. “Federal assistance is critical to properly and fairly mitigate the financial impact of this major snowstorm on State and local budges, which are both currently under tremendous pressure due to severe economic conditions,” he wrote. TLS/AP.
However, since the gov was on vacation & is first filing now, the show of conditions is not nearly as powerful as it could have been.
Does TLS only have pictures from the plow trucks with the plow up?
to #1. its so much BETTER that he filed it at the end, like this he was able to get a full survey of ALL the damages….. DUH!!!
to num yes tls has only those pictures bec all we saw through the storm was trucks with plows up
Why don’t you say it as it is..”HASHEM finally did over the weekend what all the people who thought they were so great could not do in 6 days!!!!”
Does anyone know, If it qualifies for federal help, do they pay for lost wages during the storm?
