Vainieri Huttle on Christie’s CV of Emergency Rental Assistance Benefits for Disabled Individuals

Assemblywomen Valerie Vainieri Huttle released the following statement Monday on Gov. Christie's conditional veto of legislation she sponsored to ensure the continuation of emergency rental assistance benefits for certain disabled individuals or their caretakers.

Specifically, Vainieri Huttle's bill (S-983/A-2568) would have granted the Commissioner of Human Services the authority to continually grant extensions of emergency rental assistance benefits to disabled individuals who are chronically unemployed or their caregivers. The bill would also have required notification, in writing, of any termination or modification of the recipient's emergency assistance benefits at least one month prior to termination or modification.
