Armato & Mazzeo Hurricane Sandy Relief Legislation Clears Assembly

Providing relief for New Jersey residents who were affected by Superstorm Hurricane Sandy, legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats John Armato and Vincent Mazzeo passed the full Assembly on Thursday, 74-0.

“It is important that the legislature is focused on the work that we, as a state, still have left to do in order to get to a place of full recovery from Hurricane Sandy,” said Armato (D-Atlantic). “That is why we have introduced a number of bills to continue to fight for our residents and business owners who are still struggling to rebuild their homes and communities.”

The bill (A-4530) concerns information, such as mold damage, on property condition disclosure statements provided by real estate broker, broker-salesperson, salesperson, government employee or a person licensed by the state to inspect homes.

“Though a significant amount of time has passed, we fully recognize that far too many of our families and local businesses are still struggling to regain what was lost during the devastating superstorm,” said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). “There is certainly more work to be done, but these bills are a great step forward in helping our residents rebuild.”

The measure will now go to the Senate for further review.
