New Jersey Governor Calls House Inaction on Sandy Aid ‘Inexcusable’

January 3, 2013

Gov. Chris Christie is calling the House of Representative’s failure to act on a Superstorm Sandy relief package “inexcusable.”

Christie issued a joint statement with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday lambasting Congress’ failure to approve the emergency aid measure.

Christie and Cuomo say it’s been 66 days since the storm hit, and nearly a month since President Obama proposed an aid package which was passed by the Senate.

Both governors say the House’s move to allow the bill to die was an unprecedented failure to respond to a devastating natural disaster that has impacted thousands of American lives.

Several New Jersey lawmakers expressed their outrage Wednesday on the House floor.
