Assembly Panel Approves Green Bill to Extend Building Permits for Counties Hit Hardest by Superstorm SandyAn Assembly panel on Monday approved legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Jerry Green to extend building permits for the nine counties impacted the most by Superstorm Sandy in order to continue aiding rebuilding efforts.
"This bill will extend permits which have been granted by state, regional, county, and municipal agencies for an additional year in our counties that were hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy- in order to prevent a waste of public and private resources," said Green (D-Middlesex/Somerset/Union). "When permits expire, builders and developers are forced to jump through bureaucratic hoops to re-up them, which impacts financing on the projects, creates headaches and ultimately delays rebuilding. That's the last thing we want for the counties that were devastated by Sandy."
