After today’s tour of Bergen County communities and small businesses devastated by Superstorm Sandy, Senator Joe Pennacchio urged fellow state leaders to remember also the needs of communities in the Passaic River Basin dealing with constant flooding problems.

“Superstorm Sandy is the worst natural disaster to hit this state, and the devastating personal stories we hear during the Senate’s examination of the state’s storm response and preparedness show a pressing need to do all we can to help victims reclaim their lives, ” said Pennacchio (R-Morris, Passaic). “But in so doing, we cannot forget those residents in the Passaic River Basin, who have been battling constant flooding problems in recent years. It is important for those communities to stay in our thoughts and prayers during remediation, and as we discuss allocating restoration and preparedness resources.”

Senator Pennacchio alerted state leaders of this need during today’s Senate Budget Committee public hearing at the Meadowlands.
