NJ gov seeks full reimbursement for storm costs
Monday - 12/3/2012, 8:05pm EST
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wants full federal reimbursement for some superstorm-related costs.
Christie sent a letter to the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Monday requesting reimbursement of state and local government costs for debris removal and emergency protective measures for the 90 days after Superstorm Sandy hit the state at the end of October.
The Republican governor cites the financial burden confronting the state and local communities and says debris removal might not be able to continue if governments aren't fully reimbursed.
The federal government typically doesn't reimburse for the total cost of such services. But the Christie administration says there's precedent for the request: Other states have received the aid for limited periods after similar natural disasters.
The superstorm killed more than 100 people in 10 states but hit New York and New Jersey the hardest.
