Senators Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) and Joseph Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) urged Senate Democrat leaders on Thursday to reinstate vital Superstorm Sandy recovery legislation to Monday’s Community and Urban Affairs Committee agenda.

“It is appalling that Senate Democrats have decided to punish towns and residents devastated by the worst storm in our state’s history for personal, political motives,” said Singer. “Instead of choosing to work together to provide critical assistance to our residents and businesses, Senate Democrats have decided instead to hold them captive as political pawns.”

“This legislation can assist residents and municipalities in their most critical time of need,” said Kyrillos. “We can’t let anything stand in the way of efforts that can help restore the lives and communities hit by Sandy.”

Senators Singer and Kyrillos’ S2494 would allow shore municipalities to better capitalize on beach access fees by allowing the proceeds to now also be used to rebuild and maintain nearby properties decimated by Sandy.

“With the start of the summer beach season just weeks away, this is not the time to allow political grandstanding to get in the way of what’s best for residents,” Singer added.

Senators Singer and Kyrillos, along with other Republican shore senators, today wrote a letter to Community and Urban Affairs Committee chairman Jeff Van Drew, urging him to reinstate S2494 to Monday’s committee meeting.
