Christie: Congress needs to get its act together on post-Sandy recovery funding

NEWARK – Gov. Chris Christie said today he hopes Congress can “get their act together long enough” to approve the $60 billion post-Sandy rebuilding supplemental funding.  

He said if Congress can’t even approve funding to help people rebuild who lost their homes and businesses to a hurricane, then they might as well “board up the place up and close it down.”

Despite this, Christie said he’s fairly confident the federal lawmaking body could get something approved by Jan. 1.
